The Festival’s Book Club event has always proved immensely popular, providing as it does the rare opportunity to discuss the chosen book with the author him/herself. Although created with book clubs in mind, this event is open to all. We do however recommend that you read the featured book in advance so that you can gain the very most from the discussion.
If you belong to a book club, please make sure we have the details so that we can contact you.
Our 2017 author was Sarah Perry who talked about her award-winning book The Essex Serpent which was named Overall Book of the Year and Fiction Book of the Year at the British Book Awards 2017.
