Readings and talks at Plymouth International Book Festival

Plymouth International Book Festival first ran in 2012, and was the first large scale celebration of international and UK writers that Plymouth has ever seen.

A literature festival with something for everyone to enjoy, the festival boasts a programme of readings, talks, poetry, workshops, demonstrations, music, film, and plays.

DATE: Saturday 9 November
VENUE: Plymouth Museum & Art Gallery
TIME: 14.00
TICKETS: 6 standard, 4 concessions and friends
ENQUIRIES: Box Office (buy tickets)
Exploring the work of novelists such as Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, George Eliot, and the Bronte sisters, this lively panel discussion with Helen Dunmore and Suzi Feay will address issues surrounding women as writers and social commentators. Considering how these women changed the literary landscape of the time and continue to influence writers today, this promises to be both an entertaining discussion, and a celebration of some truly inspiring writers. This event will be chaired by writer and academic, Min Wild.
