Adderbury launched it’s first Literary Festival during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations last year – and following on from that success, the organisers have managed to secure even more top authors for this year’s event.
Running over three days from Friday, November 22 to Sunday, November 24 and situated across the village library, the Institute and the church, the festival includes fascinating insights into the minds of popular writers in the author talks, book signings and question and answer sessions, as well as special children’s events.
Joining the festivities on Friday morning is pre-school favourite Jeanne Willis –whose hilarious tales include, Who’s in the Loo, The Bog Baby, Tadpole’s Promise, Daft Bat and many more.
Following this are school only events in St Mary’s Church for different age groups with Linda Newbery, who has written several titles for older children, including Polly’s March, ‘t The Firefly Gate and Sandfather.
Friday evening sees a tribute to the late, great CS Lewis by Katherine Langrish, who will take you on a journey exploring the wonderful worlds that inspired her to become a writer.
Saturday morning features a very special treat for all lovers of crime writing and thrillers, with an opportunity to gain an insight into the creative mind of Mark Mills, writer of the number one bestseller, The Savage Garden.
Sunday morning is a family event, with a look into the amazing world of the water vole with ecologist Tom Moorhouse.
Sunday afternoon brings the wonderful Julie Summers back to Adderbury.
