We launched our Big City Read 2017 on 14 September and since then free copies of To Catch a Rabbit have been flying out of our libraries and our events are booking fast.

The Big City Read is about sharing the joy of reading and we have a wealth of events and activities on offer across the city. We are very proud to be bringing some of the very best crime authors in the country to York as well as giving you the opportunity to get involved in solving murder mysteries, talking about reading and discovering new authors.

Don’t miss your chance to discover the story behind the iconic 1971 film Get Carter and see it on the big screen, to meet authors Cath Staincliffe, Sophie Hannah, Kate Ellis, Martin Edwards, Mark Billingham and Chris Brookmyre at York Explore and to solve our murder mysteries.

We are giving out 5000 free copies of To Catch a Rabbit in all of our libraries and at special pop-up events until 10 November.

Copies of the brochure are available at all York Libraries and other outlets in York and can also be downloaded, events can be booked online or by visiting your local library.
