margate_bookie_literary_festival


Novelist Louis de Bernières, author of the best-seller Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, is headlining the Margate Bookie, which returns from 5-7

The prize-winning author will discuss his career, read from his novels and answer questions from the audience on Saturday 5 May. He is one of thirty authors taking part in the event.

Jake Arnott – whose crime novels The Long Firm and He Kills Coppers were both adapted for TV – also makes his Bookie debut.

Margate-born Salena Godden, one of Britain’s foremost spoken word artists and poets, will host a performance masterclass on Sunday 6 May, before taking to the stage at The Dug Out that evening.

On Monday 7 May, top travel writer Anna Hart will discuss her new book Departures with fellow Margate resident, author Daisy Buchanan, and Thanet Writers will launch a new anthology which brings together more than twenty short stories from local authors.

Alongside the walks, talks, author readings and workshops will be the ever-popular children’s craft and storytelling events with local authors Dosh Archer, Sam Gayton and Tamara Rattigan.

The full programme can be found at www.margatebookie.com/programme. Tickets are on sale now and there are several special offers for Thanet residents.
