This year the festival is bigger than ever before with 146 events taking place over 64 venues throughout the whole month of October.

A reading group is an exciting opportunity to get together with others, to try authors and titles you might not have considered and share your thoughts about books. For further details, visit our reading groups section.
We frequently produce booklists to help our members find the books they love. Lists we have produced have including crime fiction, great books for 11+ year olds and 'ghostly and gruesome'. We aim to give our readers a sample of the great books we have.
