Manchester City of Literature
The installation is brought alive via projection and enhanced audio. A small collection of books will be installed in libraries across Greater Manchester. The books on show will have plain white covers, a blank canvas for projection. Throughout the day recorded interviews with locals will be projected onto the books along with images and book covers of their favourite books. This magical installation brings our books to life and fills the space with the voices of our communities. Sharing stories, building bridges, encouraging conversation and giving an excuse to visit your local library.
The libraries taking part are The Portico Library, Oldham Library, Heywood Library, Urmston Library and Prestwich Library.
