The Big Sandwell Read!

Welovebearwood can't think of anything better than snuggling down with a good book and a nice big warm cup of tea!

Sometimes though if you're like us you want a change from your normal read and want to try something a bit different.

Sandwell Libraries have put a book list together of all their current favourite children's and adults' books. The lists are downloadable too - please just click on here.

You can vote for your favourite and there's going to be an award ceremony in June for Sandwell's best read.

The lists includes something for everyone and one of our favourite books from last year 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' is on there. It's written by the same chap who wrote the 'Kite Runner', Khaled Hosseini. It's a really powerful moving story.

The next Big Sandwell Read event is this Thursday at Bleakhouse Library when you can get to meet best selling thriller writer Sophie Hannah from 7pm - 8.30pm.
Sophie's Sophie’s first psychological thriller 'Little Face' is on the list and is described by the Times as ‘Quite brilliant'. Need we say more!

Tickets are only £3 for library members and £5 for non-library members.

If you want to find out more about the event or would like to book a seat please contact Bleakhouse Library on 0121 422 2798 or email bleakhouse_library@sandwell.gov.uk.
