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, the 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 – on Thursday 7th November Richard Mabey, Honourary President of W&BA, will be presenting extracts from his new collection of essays Turning the Boat for Home, at The Cut in Halesworth.
We also hope to arrange 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 Booker Prize winners during her 40 years as a leading figure in British publishing.
