After four months of library, book group, school and festival events, Read Regional 2016 has come to a close. We’d like to thank everyone who attended events and made our authors feel welcome in their local libraries, the 22 librarians with whom we programme Read Regional events across the North of England, and our 2016 authors: Helen Cadbury, Ian Clayton, Carys Davies, Crista Ermiya, Andrew Forster, Chris Killen, Rachel McIntyre, Kim Moore, Hazel Osmond, and Caroline Roberts.
