Books by the Beach – Scar­bor­ough’s an­nual lit­er­a­ture fes­ti­val – is un­der way. Writer, broad­caster and for­mer stand-up co­me­dian Natalie Haynes was the first guest yes­ter­day.

She talked about her book The Chil­dren of Jo­casta. The fes­ti­val runs un­til Sun­day and di­rec­tor Heather French said there is some­thing to suit all tastes. “There is crime, food, wine and royal ro­mance,” she said.

“I am par­tic­u­larly pleased to wel­come Lionel Shriver, who I have been try­ing to get to the fes­ti­val for years.” Award-win­ning Lionel Shriver will talk about her new col­lec­tion of short sto­ries at Scar­bor­ough Li­brary Con­cert Room on Satur­day. To­mor­row gets un­der way with an Amnesty In­ter­na­tional event at the li­brary. More de­tails – page 44.
