Following our announcement of Helen Cadbury as our Big City Read author in April we are deeply saddened by the news of her death on 30 June 2017. Our thoughts and sympathy are with her family and friends at this difficult time.
Both Helen and her publishers were in touch with us prior to her death and she was devastated that she would not be able to be there for our Big City Read. Helen 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 goes ahead. We are intending that this year’s Big City Read of To Catch a Rabbit will be a celebration of her work and will include the launch of her third novel Race to the Kill.
The Big City Read 2017 brochure and event booking page will be available from 1 August.
