24th November - 2nd December
Books on Tyne
Our partnership with Newcastle Libraries continues with the eighth year of Books on Tyne, our Winter Literary Festival.
It’s a packed programme including a celebration of Muriel Spark’s centenary, with her friend Alan Taylor, in conversation with Sean O’Brien. Eminent First World War historian Richard van Emden joins us, with a consideration of his book The Quick and the Dead.
For budding detectives there is a FREE session with Laura Wood, author of the Poppy Pym series, and for young story lovers there is a FREE performance of The Snow Bear from Hearthside Tales, with Chris Bostock and his band of brilliant musicians.

As a member you can borrow most books published after 1850 (but not all at once). You can also access wi-fi in the Library and benefit from priority booking at some events. By joining the Lit & Phil, you are also supporting this wonderful institution, so thank you!
Check if we have that book you've been looking for. You don't need to be a member to search the catalogue; search by title, author, keyword or subject. Members can then reserve the book to collect later.
