Derby Libraries Big Family Read
Published: 24 September 2021
Each year we pick one book and work to engage families across the city to read, create, and be inspired by the story. This year we are reading Evie and the Animals by best-selling author Matt Haig. It looks to be a brilliant book all about a little girl called Evie who can talk to animals, it’s got a great message about embracing difference as well, and is illustrated by award-winning Emily Gravett. We’ll have print copies in all Derby libraries and the eBook and eAudiobook available to download for free as well on our website.
We are also launching our short story competition again and new to this year we have some short films produced by an actor and storyteller Robin Simpson. There is some more information on our website
