From a shortlist of six books, this year’s title has been selected! The 2019 Big Read is The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. Following a retired man on his journey across the country to try and save his friend Queenie, the book is a heart-warming story of love, friendship, loss and hope.
The distribution of The Big Read title to all new students will be followed by plenty of Harold-related activities, a visit from the author and a number of exciting events for all students and staff to get involved in. If you haven’t yet read The Unlikely Pilgrimage, there are copies available in the library on the second floor (823.9/JOY).
