Just a quick reminder that Bath LitFest opens today-Friday 25th February 2011, through until Sunday 6th March 2011.
I have just been checking out the itinerary of events, only to find that many are already sell-outs, so if you are planning to visit, you need to check the festival schedule and, where possible, make advance bookings, to avoid disappointment.
There are some great names in the literary world, who’s talks and events still have some availability, including:
- Dr. David Starkey
- Kim Edwards – Representing a new event for this season – ‘Fiction USA’
- Andrea Levy
- Kazuo Ishiguro
- Nicole Krauss – On a rare visit to the UK, from her US home – talks about her latest book, ‘Great House’
- Peter Lovesey – Talks about his character, Bath’s own fictional detective, DS Peter Diamond
- Louis de Bernieres
Plus many other talks and lectures covering a diverse range of literary genres and perspectives.
The City of Bath provides a breathtaking backdrop for this great event, with so many things to see and do outside of the literary arena, that you can’t fail to enjoy your day, whatever the weather!
