A Great Success With More To Come: Beverley Literature Festival 2011

The first weekend of the Literature Festival saw queuing round the block for Val MacDermid and Mark ; and the Treasure House was packed with children meeting authors, making stories and being spell-bound by at the children’s literature festival.

On Thursday, Thomas Penn will be talking about his acclaimed, debut account of early Tudor – it’s been admired by novelists (including Hilary Mantel) and historians alike.  Be among the first to hear the next David Starkey!

And on Friday, one of the great names in UK fiction, Margaret Drabble, will be reading and talking about her collected short stories and the art of shorter fiction.

The final weekend sees a mix of genres ranging from the novel and sports-writing to an analysis of the self-help industry by the witty and insightful Guardian columnist Oliver Burkeman.

John Wedgwood Clarke, Festival director, said: “ has always brought the very best in writing to the East Riding of Yorkshire.  So make the most of this wonderful literary festival on your doorstep and let’s continue nine years of success – in uncertain times, the more show they want something to continue, the more it’s likely to survive.”
