Description


The BBC Two series, The Novels That Shaped Our World, will be accompanied in the autumn by BBC Arts’ The Novels That Shaped our World Festival, a multi-platform collaboration between the BBC, libraries and reading groups that will reveal and explore the top 100 novels which have had an impact over the last three centuries.

The list - which will spark debate and celebrate the joy of reading - will be chosen by a panel of six renowned journalists and broadcasters.

The panel will appear on Radio 2’s Book Club to discuss deliberations before the 100 novels, all in the English language and all works of fiction, will be revealed at a live event hosted by Radio 2’s Jo Whiley at the British Library and streamed live at the City Library from the Living Knowledge Network on 8th November
