SW11 Literary Festival

I know I said I wasn't going to post for a while because I'm writing ... but I thought you might like to know that the SW11 (London) Literary Festival begins on Monday 8 September and ends on Monday 29 September.

Here's what Wandsworth Council - the organisers - say about it:

The SW11 Literary Festival 2008 is going to be one of the most exciting so far. Apart from a programme of excellent writers there are a number of creative writing workshops, from poetry to playwriting, to starting a novel. There is also an event devoted entirely to chocolate! The legendary Quiz is back, get a team together and turn up at the Latchmere Pub for a great evening of Literary fun.
Victoria Hislop and Will Self and Ruth Rendell will be appearing, among many others, including the wonderful storyteller Jan Blake who'll be running a storytelling workshop. And I'm going to do a Speaking of Love talk and reading on Wednesday 24 September @ 7pm at Battersea Library, Lavender Hill, SW11.

Hope to see you there.

Oo, if only I were coming anywhere near London this month... hope it goes really, really well, Angela.

Thanks for your good wishes, Simon.

And Alex, I tried to watch through the link you sent - but it said it had a 'malformed' ! link ... never mind. I think I'll stick to words on paper or screen ... .

I hope I can make it (will just need to find a decent excuse to get out of choir practice!)

I haven't quite finished reading Speaking of Love (although the tube ride home should give me time to finish it) but I already love it so much, I am telling everyone to buy it. The local independent book shop in Wood Green recommended it to me and I'm so glad they did.

Thank you so much, anonymous ... and if you do make it on 24 September do introduce yourself. It'll be a small event because it's my first novel - so not too many readers/followers yet - but if you've managed to finish Speaking of Love by then I'd love to hear what you feel about it.
