The East Riding Festival of Words is back this week, bringing popular authors to the local area.
Several events are now sold out. However, there are still some tickets left for a range of very different events.
For all these events, tickets are available online at festivalofwords.co.uk. You can also get them over the phone at 01482 392699 until midday on Friday 18 October. After this time tickets will be available on the door at events.
Rhik Samadder, writer and Guardian columnist, on Friday, 18 October at 3.30pm in the beautiful setting of Beverley Art Gallery: “I Never Said I Loved You” – a memoir discussing depression and understanding your own mental health.
Rhik is a very interesting, articulate and amusing speaker. His book should appeal to readers of books by Matt Haig, and anybody who enjoys a great memoir.

The event will be hosted by local author Louise Beech. Her book ‘Call Me Star Girl’ recently won Book of the Year in the Big Book Awards 2019.
