About this event

This all-day event for book lovers celebrates 15 years in 2018. With a brilliant line-up of acclaimed authors and speakers, and a range of sessions to choose from, it's a highlight of the reading year that shouldn't be missed!

This year's guest speakers include:

Kate Mascarenhas - author of The Psychology of Time Travel described as a 'brilliantly original new voice'

Claire Fuller - whose first novel Our Endless Numbered Days won the Desmond Elliott Prize for debut fiction. Her latest book is the critically acclaimed Bitter Orange.

Annabel Abbs - author of Frieda - A Novel of The Real Lady Chatterley. Her debut novel The Joyce Girl won the 2015 Impress Prize for New Writing and the 2015 Spotlight First Novel Award.

The day also includes a range of fascinating parallel sessions for readers in the morning and afternoon. This year's sessions cover an array of topics from the lives of Lady Byron and Ada Lovelace and Wuthering Heights to Black Writing in the City and Working Class Fiction.

Important: Before booking your tickets, please read through the leaflet and choose your preferences for the parallel sessions. You'll be asked on booking to select a first and second preference for both the morning and afternoon. We can't guarantee your preferred choices, but we'll do our best!
