Essex Book Festival programme brochures are now in Essex Libraries and it was great to deliver a batch to the Brentwood Writers' Circle this afternoon.
As a Patron of the EBF for many years, I've always been pleased to publicise this great annual celebration of the work of our best authors in Britain. This year we will be welcoming more than 100 authors, dramatists, poets, artists and filmmakers starting from the official launch on Sunday 1 March at 2.30pm at Southend-on-Sea's Forum in Elmer Square, SS1 1NE.
Shami Chakrabarti CBE is the new Chancellor at the University of Essex and she will be in Southend at the grand launch. Learn more at:
