Literary Leicester 2016: Wednesday 16 - Saturday 19 November!
In 2015, the festival's eighth year, we brought together a wealth of award-winning and renowned writers from many different fields. Literature lovers from the region joined us for a huge range of exciting and stimulating sessions: all completely free!
Our vibrant and dynamic fringe events also offered fascinating insights into research at the University, present local authors and works in performance, showcase new writing commissions, and much more. Between events, audiences had a chance to meet the writers, buy books and have them signed, catch a coffee or a glass of wine, and browse the exhibitions in our award-winning University Library.
We hope you will join us in 2016 to share our passion for literature, in what promises again to be a fantastic festival.
Previous festivals have included Booker Prize-winning novelists and world-leading historians, famous children’s authors to topical subjects like the centenary of the First World War – Literary Leicester really does offer something for everyone.
