LIBRARIES across Lancashire are taking part in the Great North West Read next month.

The event aims to bring book-lovers together and encourage group discussion.

The chosen book is the Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick.

This book is about volunteer librarian, Martha Storm, who finds a mysterious book of fairy tales.

Martha finds a surprising dedication in the book that stirs up family secrets and a personal emotional journey

County Cllr Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "This gives us a great opportunity to bring readers in Lancashire together as a community to spark conversations about books and to celebrate their shared love of reading.

"We want as many adult readers across the county as possible to take part."
