Festivals provide light, excitement and bring the town to life. Books provide inspiration.
As part of this year’s digital Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival, we asked colleagues if they have positive go-to quotes from much-loved books. We loved them so much we wanted to share a selection to help bring literature to life:

Victor Hugo – Les Miserables
