The sixteen free-to-access eBook titles in the Dawn of the Unread series (part of the award-winning Nottingham-based Dawn of the Unread project) can now be accessed through Library OneSearch. The Dawn of the Unread series imagines:
what would happen if the great literary figures from Nottingham’s past went unread. If their ideas are not preserved and made accessible will they effectively disappear from our minds? Sillitoe, Lawrence, Byron et al would never put up with such an insult and so return from the grave, in a twist on the zombie genre, in search of the one thing that will ensure their survival: ‘boooks’.
