Writing Britain Exhibition and Events

We have been very busy here working on an exhibition that will be shown in Central Library between 4th December and the 30th January. Leeds was chosen as one of four cities outside of London to hold a Writing Britain exhibition in partnership with the British library.

Writing Britain: Leeds celebrates the use of our Yorkshire landscape in literature. Explore works from our library collections and items from the British Library as well as viewing new material from a group of young people working on the project.

We have had such a good time putting the exhibition together, picking works of fiction and poetry to share with you and working with the young poeple to produce their work has been fantastic. We are also hosting a number of events while the exhibition is on; you can join us to make mini books like the Brontes, hear contemporary authors talk about creating a sense of place with their work or enjoy a Yorkshire tea while hearing about the Brontes. Further details of the events and the exhibition can be found here.
