THE ESSEX BOOK FESTIVAL IS COMING!
Throughout Essex at various libraries, University of Essex, academies and church halls, we will meet writers such as Alexander McCall Smith, Andrew Motion, Jodi Picoult, Prue Leith, Simon Brett, Kathy Lette and a host of other luminaries from the world of books, theatre, art and craft.
We kick off on l March at Chelmsford Library and the launch will involve BBC Essex's superduper presenter, Dave Monk who will be broadcasting live to the 1.5 million residents in our county. To discover more, visit www.essexbookfestival.org.uk or follow us on Facebook (facebook.com) and Twitter (twitter.com) and I will also keep our Linked In friends up to date, too. Do book early as seats will be in demand.
It is a pleasure to be a Festival Patron once again alongside Barbara Erskine, Germaine Greer and Francis Wheen. Look forward to seeing you!
