Festival highlights include appearances by novelist Louis de Bernieres, ex-Minister Vince Cable, Orange Prize Winning novelist Helen Dunmore and many, many more well-known writers and performers.
Tomorrow, as a Patron of the Festival, I will be talking about this great happening on our monthly Book Club programme at the Phoenix 98fm studio in Brentwood. So much to include during the session as we also have another wonderful Essex artist on the show - James (Jim) Merriott who is the guest of presenter Michelle Ward.
Hopefully, too, the Phoenix 98fm studio will welcome the EBF Director, Ros Green in March who will be offering her thoughts on this year's Book Festival. To book tickets, please contact the Mercury Theatre in Colchester 01206 573948/mercurytheatre.co.uk and check out the website www.essexbookfestival.org.uk which will give all details. Programmes can be found at most libraries in Essex. Look forward to seeing you there.
