CITY READS 2018

1 Feb 2018

City Reads, Brighton and Hove’s BIG READ, returns to Brighton Festival with award winning novel Sacred Country, from one of Britain’s literary heavyweights.

Join Rose Tremain (CBE) live for an intimate celebration of her 1992 classic, and re-discover this hugely relevant work told with skill and compassion.
