Mr Ship continued: “The Reading Room will suggest four titles, and there’ll be discussions with the authors of those titles.
“Then throughout the seasons, there will be new books added to the list.
“They want it to feel global, there’ll be a real focus on authors from across the Commonwealth.
“There’ll also be a range of different types of literature.”
