Wakefield Lit Fest

Headliners Combined grab
Wakefield Lit Fest returns for its second year 21 – 30 September. The theme is ‘Everyone has a story’ and you can see the full programme and book online at the festival website There’s something for everyone – creative writing, stories, walks, art and of course authors.
Don’t miss the Readers’ morning on 21st with Gavin Extence (The Universe versus Alex Woods) and James Wheatley (Magnificent Joe), a chance to discuss the books with their authors and other readers. I’m really looking forward to a morning with other passionate readers talking about books!
21st September will be a red letter day as one of my favourite authors, Tracy Chevalier, is speaking (at the Westgate Unitarian Chapel at 7pm) about her new book The Last Runaway.
Carol Ann Duffy- yes, the Poet Laureate – is appearing on 26th for an evening of poetry and music then there is just time to see David Nobbs, author of comedy classics like ‘A Bit of a Do’
I enjoyed the TV series so I must see Michael Wood talking about his ‘Story of England’ project on 27th..Those are my highlights. What will you be going to see or taking part in?
