Havant Literary Festival

I'm lining up with some very interesting people at the forthcoming Havant Literary Festival, which takes place between 25 and 28 September 2008.

On Saturday 27 September I will be talking about my writing career, taking a Q&A session and signing copies of my books at Havant Arts Centre from 10.30am to 12noon. Tickets are on sale at £5.00 and for more information visit the web site http://www.havantlitfest.hampshire.org.uk/

The playwright, Ronald Harwood, whose plays Collaboration and Taking Sides are currently playing to rave reviews at Chichester Festival Theatre, will appear at Havant Literary Festival on 26 September at Havant Arts Centre.

Ronald Harwood, who is a patron of Havant Literary Festival, will give a Question and Answer session immediately following a screening of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, for which he won a Bafta award this year for best-adapted screenplay. The combined film and talk ticket price is £4.50, available from Havant Arts Centre, 023 9247 2700.

Also at the Literary Festival is Chichester Festival Theatre favourite, Artistic Director, Patrick Garland, with a talk on 'My Life in Theatre', on Saturday, 27 September and University of Chichester Creative Writing tutor Stephanie Norgate, who will perform at the Tongues and Grooves concert on the opening night of the Festival, 25 September. Stephanie's Hidden River has been short-listed for a Forward Best First Collection Poetry Prize. Her fellow University of Chichester tutor, Hugh Dunkerley, will be running a 'Wild Writing' poetry workshop on Saturday, 27 September at Nineveh Gallery and Bookshop.

Billingshurst resident and travel writer Edward Enfield and Samuel Johnson Non-Fiction Prize Winner Kate Summerscale, plus Brighton-based poet John Davies, aka Shedman are also making guest appearances.
