There are events for just about every age and interest at the Book Festival, bringing readers and writers together for inspiration, entertainment and discussion. Over 900 authors appear in around 800 events, including novelists, poets, scientists, sportsmen, illustrators, comics creators, historians, musicians, biographers, Nobel and Booker prize-winners and many more besides.
The 2019 Book Festival takes place from 10-26 August.
Full details of the programme, including authors, themes and events with BSL interpretation and captioning will be available here from 18.30 on Thursday 6 June.
