5591497The Big City Read 2017
DateThursday 14th September 2017 to Friday 10th November 2017
DescriptionOnce again, Waterstones is delighted to support York Explore's Big City Read.The book for 2017 is Helen Cadburys To Catch a Rabbit. Sadly Helen died earlier this summer, but she was very proud and excited to have been chosen to be our author this year and it was her wish that the Big City Read go ahead. We are intending that this years Big City Read of To Catch a Rabbit will be a celebration of her work.The Big City Read is about sharing the joy of reading and we hope our programme this year achieves this aim. We have a wealth of events and activities on offer and will be giving away 5,000 free copies of To Catch a Rabbit from 15 September to 10 November.To Catch a Rabbit brings the Big City Read bang up to date with a very modern crime story set in both York and Doncaster. We get to know Sean Denton, a young Community Support Officer in his first job with the Police Force and Karen Friedman, a weary mother of two who works for the Refugee and Migrants Advice Centre in York. As the two get closer to finding the people they are looking for, their stories come together in an explosive finale. Along the way we follow the themes of immigration, trafficking, the exploitation of women and the complexity of human relationships and contemporary social issues in York and the wider world in 2017.Waterstones will be providing book sales for many of the events including Sophie Hannah, Tom Harper with Ruth Ware andAlison Weir to name but a few.We advise booking in advance for all of theevents, including the free ones, to make sure of a place.
