The fifth Lavenham Literary Festival is fast approaching, 17th - 19th November 2017

Lavenham Literary Festival has become a firm favourite among its many regular supporters and has earned an enviable reputation for providing a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for speakers and audiences alike.

The event on 17-19 November boasts another impressive line-up, including the return of firm favourites Tracy Borman, Clare Mulley and Tracy Chevalier - all with newly released books - as well as many other top authors appearing at Lavenham for the first time.

Radio 4's Saturday Live programme is well represented with the popular JP Devlin introducing bestselling author Erica James and the Reverend Richard Coles speaking in Sunday's concluding session. The programme also includes a panel of Churchill biographers, led by Andrew Lownie; Charles Abel-Smith (From Eton to Ypres); Daisy Hay (Mr & Mrs Disraeli); Sophie Hannah along with her author- mother, Adele Geras; and Greg Votolato (The Golden Age of Ocean Liners).

The popularity of the event has led the Committee to increase its size to 10 sessions, most of which will be held in Lavenham's impressive Village Hall. The event also boasts an anticipated sell-out Festival Dinner, with speaker Simon Barnes and an all-day creative writing course run by the highly rated Bridget Holding of Wild Words.

The full programme can be found on www.lavenhamliteraryfestival.co.uk.
