AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 BOOKS: READERS' DAY - LORD ASHCROFT BUILDING, ANGLIA RUSKIN UNIVERSITY

 
 
Looking forward to Saturday 29 June 9.30am-4.30pm when we are visiting Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford - Lord Ashcroft Building to enjoy listening to the Oxygen Book's city-pick team talk about some of their fabulous books set in Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Venice and Istanbul. Later in the morning we will hear Kate Mosse, author of the Languedoc Trilogy, featuring Labyrinth, Sepulchre and Citadel - wonderfully best-selling titles. Check her out at www.katemosse.co.uk.

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
