The Big Commute Challenge

Take the challenge, break barriers and build a bridge that will connect you with people from different countries and cultures.

All you have to do is find a book from an author born/raised in a country you know little about. Then share your thoughts about it here or in Facebook, and mention one thing you learnt about the place.

Click on a Country to access a list of books available at Christchurch City Libraries.

About the Library lists: If you have any other books or authors to recommend, leave a message in this page or on Facebook and we will search the Library catalogue and update the country list. Also, some countries in the list below do not have a link to the Library, meaning no author or books were found. If you find them or know where to get a copy send us a message. 

Get inspired by someone who already done it: Ann Morgan
