Workshops will follow around 11.30 and after lunch, we'll meet other bestselling novelists and publishers, followed by that fascinating writer and Venetian resident, Michelle Lovric, author of Carnevale, The Floating Book, The Remedy and the Book of Human Skin. She also writes for younger readers, setting her novels in historic Venice. See more at www.michellelovric.
Towards the end of the day, we'll hear from Ann Morgan who set herself the task of reading one book from every one of the world's 196 countries. She will tell us about the joys and surprising discoveries she had made. What a project!!! Tickets £15 (£12 concs) 01206 573948 or on line http://www.essexbookfestival.org.uk SEE YOU THERE
