Literary Leicester: Wednesday 11-Saturday 14 November 2015
Now in its eighth year, the festival brings together a wealth of award-winning and renowned writers from many different fields. Join us and other literature lovers from the region for a huge range of exciting and stimulating sessions: all completely free!
Our vibrant and dynamic fringe events also offer fascinating insights into research at the University, present local authors and works in performance, showcase new writing commissions, and much more. Between events, you will have 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 and 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.
