The BigRead BookBench activity, Reading Books, Sharing Stories, taking place on the Zellig BookBenches, will be an opportunity for families to share their favourite book or poem. Bring your favourite read, and your children’s, and talk to us about why these are loved stories. We’ll have writers reading their favourite works on the benches and talking about their love of reading.
Events are free to attend.
