Felixstowe Book Festival

Felixstowe Book Festival is going online for 2020

Felixstowe Book Festival has become one of the highlights of the East Anglian arts calendar and is heading online for another exciting programme of events from 26th to 28th June 2020. 

This year's online festival is FREE for everyone to enjoy!

Festival director Meg Reid said: "The Festival is an opportunity to create something positive out of what has been a very frustrating year so far. It is a way of bringing people together and creating a sense of community and belonging even during a period of isolation".

The Felixstowe Book Festival Book Group kick off the on-line festival when author Ruth Dugdall, and librarian and book lover Liz Rastrick, invite everyone to a birthday party to celebrate Anne Bronte’s 200th birthday.  

On Friday June 26, at 7.30pm, on Zoom (ID: 858 5444 7275) Nick Holland, a leading authority on the Brontës, will join in to talk about his latest book ‘Crave the Rose: Anne Bronte at 200’. He is also the author of ‘In Search of Anne Bronte’.

Nick will reveal Anne’s brilliance as a writer, her tragic death and her life with genius sisters Charlotte and Emily.

A great way to kick off this year's online programme!
