Description

On Saturday June 10th, join us for The Emerald Street Literary Festival.

Now in its second year, the Festival is back with an exciting and interesting line-up. Some of our favourite writers will be reading from their latest work; the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction shortlist will debate why we love to talk about books; there are panels on race in today’s Britain, travel writing and our continuing fascination with witchcraft and an extra-long session run in collaboration with global storytelling collective The Moth.

Book as many sessions as you wish, anyone booking two or more sessions will receive a free book on the door.

We’re looking forward to seeing you!
