A festival for inquisitive minds... 15 authors in 30 hours.
A new literary festival is coming to south-east London this autumn. The festival has been set up by Abbotshall HLC in Catford in conjunction with hyper-local newspaper The Lewisham Ledger.
The aim in the first year is to put on around 10-12 events over the first weekend of October and to then go on and become an annual staple in the book festival calendar.
Natasha Clarkson, Abbotshall’s Centre and Partnership Director said: “We’re really excited to be teaming up with The Lewisham Ledger to bring a new book festival to south-east London and to highlight literature in Catford. We really want to showcase the diverse literary talent that the area has to offer and have already been inundated with local authors wanting to take part."
