With a programme that’s more eyebrow-raising than eye-catching the Nottingham Festival of Literature is coming to town (Nov 8-13). There is a diversion from many of the usual festival faces, with several international writers making their first appearance in the city. Some of the pricing may seem steep but there’s no doubt that this is a line-up of writers with something to say, rather than something to sell. In this sense it’s a brave programme and one that UNESCO would approve of.
Please spend time reading the programme where I’m sure you’ll find several interesting and inspiring events.
