Readers' Day 2017

Full programme announced and tickets on sale!

The annual Nottingham and Inspire Nottinghamshire Libraries’ Readers’ Day takes place on Saturday 18 November at County Hall, West Bridgford.

The full, exciting line-up has now been announced, and features:

Shrabani Basu – the writer behind the book Victoria and Abdul, which has now become a major feature film starring Judi Dench

Jane Harris – the acclaimed author of the Observations – chosen as one of Richard and Judy’s Books of the Decade. She joins us following the publication of her new novel Sugar Money.

Jenn Ashworth – named as one The Culture Show’s Best New British Novelists. “Dark, compelling, beautifully written” is how The Guardian describes her latest novel The Fell.

Plus, as ever, there’s a wonderfully wide choice of parallel sessions to choose from during this all-day event for book lovers, including sessions on:

Why We Love Music

Austen’s Father Figures

Brilliant Book Blurbs

Dorothy L Sayers

And lots more . . .

This much-loved event almost always sells out, so early booking is highly recommended! * Plus, there’s an early bird offer on until 27 October!
