The Big Read Event
This October, we’re encouraging readers across County Durham to delve deep into the magical worlds of David Almond’s Half a Creature from the Sea, a stunning collection of short stories from the Carnegie Medal-winning author of Skellig.
Inspired by his Tyneside childhood, these eight moving and mystical tales allow you to imagine the North East as never before…
Join us for a special evening with this magical storyteller as he reflects on his life and his career.
One of the country’s oldest literary festivals, Durham Book Festival returns from 7 to 15 October with events held in a host of iconic venues including the historic Durham Town Hall, Durham Cathedral and our own Gala Theatre. View the full festival line-up at www.durhambookfestival.com.
