Cityread Home



Cityread London is a celebration of the power of reading to bring communities together.

It is celebrated every April, across all of London’s 33 boroughs, with libraries at its heart.

Our 2017 book is Prophecy by S. J. Parris, a gripping Elizabethan spy thriller set in London 1583.

Our full programme of events will be announced in the new year but in the meantime why not read the thrilling opening extract then borrow the book from your library or buy from your local bookshop?
