NORTH CORNWALL BOOK FESTIVAL
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.
