Small Island Read

Cover of Small Island

This is the biggest mass-reading initiative that has ever taken place in Britain. This year's project brings together Aye Write! the Glasgow book festival, the Bristol and South West Great Reading Adventures, Hull Libraries and Liverpool Reads to encourage people to read Andrea Levy's highly-acclaimed novel Small Island.

The book is a great choice for 2007, the year commemorating the 200th anniversary of the passing of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act and exploring slavery's continuing influence upon multicultural Britain.

Thousands of copies of the book are available to borrow from library services in all participating locations. There are also free illustrated readers' guides and books for younger readers.
