Celebrate World Book Day 2013 by hearing the creative output of some of the most exciting, interesting and innovative writers in Portsmouth.
The Portsmouth BookFest held in October and November 2012 was a city-wide celebration of great writing that included guest appearances from world-renowned writers, fascinating workshops, engrossing talks - as well as fabulous contributions from the talent that flourishes in and around Portsmouth itself.
20 locally connected writers were invited to read for 12 minutes in public libraries, as part of an event called 20x12. Their brief was to find an audience and entertain them with their work. This evening will be a chance to relive those performances, and get a copy of the new anthology Writers to Watch, which features the work of those involved.
