The #foundfiction story hunt

The #foundfiction story hunt


A good novel can make you feel like you’re in the world of its characters. But it’s not very often you get the chance to literally walk the streets of a novel’s setting while you’re turning the pages. On Saturday, September 29, literature fans in Leeds will get the chance to do just that as part of a unique book launch for Chris Nickson’s _The Hanging Psalm._

Members of the public will be invited to take a step back in time to Leeds in 1820, when _The Hanging Psalm_ is set, as they immerse themselves in the story in the hunt for exclusive extracts from the novel. Each extract will hold a clue to the whereabouts of the next – with all of them tucked away in specific city centre locations mentioned in the novel.

The first person to find all five extracts will win a free signed book. Everyone taking part will be invited to the official launch of _The Hanging Psalm_ – at Waterstones on Albion Street on Thursday, October 4, at 6.30pm.

As the public takes part in this literary treasure hunt that’s a cross between geo-caching and Pokemon Go, they’ll be encouraged to share their experiences to social media using the #foundfiction hashtag.
