Wimbledon Bookfest

I hope you will forgive a little plug for my home town’s book festival, Wimbledon Bookfest, which takes place from 3rd – 11th October. The festival is launched with a community event in St Mark’s Place in the town centre on Saturday 3rd. Although the theme of this year’s festival is Darwin, one of the highlights for me will be to see the historian Alison Weir speak at Southside on 4th October about her book, The Lady in the Tower: The Fall of Anne Boleyn (7.00pm, tickets £10.00). I am also looking forward to seeing Sadie Jones, author of Outcast, who will be at Waterstone’s on 7th October at 7.00pm talking about her new novel, Small Wars (tickets £5). I will be at as many of the events as possible and look forward to seeing you there.
