    Home to the UK’s first public lending library and writers such as Elizabeth Gaskell, the city's bid has been accepted

    After lodging its bid to become a UNESCO City of Literature in June, Manchester had to endure a tense few months before learning the outcome. It was worth the wait, however, as Halloween saw UNESCO announce the bid had been successful.
