Big Sporting Read

Big Sporting Read

The Big Sporting Read is a collaboration between national charity The Reading Agency and BBC Arts, aiming to use the power of sport to inspire readers across the UK – highlighting the links between sporting excellence, reading, health and wellbeing.

The list, which was announced at Hay Festival on the 29 May, has been curated by The Reading Agency together with librarians, booksellers, and an expert advisory panel.
