A campaign connecting northern authors to readers is back, bringing poets and authors to libraries in Bradford.

Read Regional, run by New Writing North in partnership with 19 library authorities, deals with emerging and established writers.

Claire Malcolm, chief executive of New Writing North, said: “Read Regional was a project that we started in 2008 on a hunch that readers were interested in authors who lived and worked in their region. The campaign took off and was hugely successful in the North East.”
