The Listing Lists

Journeys of Discovery Reading List

As part of the Royston Arts Festival we have worked with Royston Library to put together a reading list of titles loosely on the theme of “Journeys of Discovery”.

It’s just for fun, but we’d love to hear from you if you read a book from the list or if you would like to let us know of a title that would have been on your list.

1. The Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster
2. Around the World in 80 Days, Jules Verne
3. The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer
4. Where The Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak
5. On the Road, Jack Kerouac
6. Wild: A Journey from Lost to Found, Cheryl Strayed
7. The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, Jonas Jonasson
8. The Odyssey, Homer
