Through performance, poetry and stories, authors of Northern Dreaming share their unique perspective and imagination.

LEEDS 2023 and the British Library have come together to create a special gift for babies born in Leeds in 2023.

Northern Dreaming is a collection of poems and stories by 18 emerging and published writers.

With stories for babies, children and young adults, the book is designed to carry readers all the way through their childhood.
