Welcome to the Essex Book Festival! Pictures here of Michael Foley whose books are selling fast and Francis Wheen, a new Patron of the Festival this year being interviewed by Ray Clark of BBC Essex.

Celebrate ten years of success with us in the biggest and best ever Essex Book Festival! The Essex Book Festival owes its success to the perfect balance it brings between attracting the biggest names in the literary world and yet still providing an excellent opportunity for newer writers to meet their public. And 2009 is no exception. You can meet the really famous, and meet others before they become household names!

Choose from crime, history, life-style and creative writing events, storytelling events for the whole family, comics workshops and events to celebrate the Jiangsu Festival. And, as ever, Essex writers are well represented.

Enjoy the festival!
