NORTH CORN­WALL BOOK FES­TI­VAL

Cornwall Life - - THE DIARY -

It’s only in its sixth year but this fes­ti­val punches well above its weight, bring­ing to­gether lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional au­thors for talks, con­ver­sa­tions, work­shops and in­ter­views for two en­ter­tain­ing and in­spir­ing days.

This year’s guest speak­ers in­clude Man Booker prizewin­ning au­thor Anne En­right, in­ter­na­tion­ally cel­e­brated nov­el­ist Joanna Trol­lope, Booker short­listed Fiona Mo­z­ley, stand-up co­me­dian and clas­si­cist Natalie Haynes, Worst Witch cre­ator Jill Mur­phy, Nina Stibbe on her lat­est novel, sea-in­spired writ­ers Philip Hoare and Ho­ra­tio Clare and many more. There will be work­shops led by lead­ing au­thors on writ­ing po­etry, fic­tion and non-fic­tion.

There’s also an art ex­hi­bi­tion and con­cert per­for­mances.

The fes­ti­val is part of En­delienta, the year-round arts pro­gramme at St En­del­lion, and has as its artis­tic di­rec­tor Pen­zance­based au­thor Pa­trick Gale.
