Two Rivers Book Festival 16-30 June 2019
The first Two Rivers book festival is now over and we would like to thank all those people who were involved as speakers, workshop or walk leaders, bookshop owners, librarians and volunteers – as well as everyone who came along to take part.
We hope that we have succeeded in raising the profile of those who promote, protect, create and distribute books in our area and to remind us all of the uniqueness of books.
There will be more events to follow even before next year’s festival. On Thursday 7 November at 7.30 Richard Mabey, honorary president of Waveney and Blyth Arts, will be talking about his new book, a collection of essays called Turning the Boat for Home, at The Cut in Halesworth.
We are also arranging an evening with our distinguished book festival patron, Liz Calder, about her experience as one of this year’s Booker Prize judges, and working with previous prize winners during her 40 years as a leading figure in British publishing.
