Open Book Festival is back! Different season (autumn), different venue (Bertha House), different format (no parallel events and Covid-19-protocol-limited seats), different wine sponsor (Farm Boy) – but same old great stories to be told. It’s a miracle that it is happening at all. Most of us realise how hard everyone involved had to work in order to make this a reality and we are immensely grateful. We can’t wait! The opening bash was small and intimate, but absolutely inspiring, as always. Karavan Press will be launching a new title at the festival – this is where the first copies of Joy Watson’s debut novel The Other Me will be available for the first time to the general public, so grab one while you can, because one never knows when a first edition might become a true collector’s item 🙂 And Nancy Richards will be there, her memoir, The Skipper’s Daughter, sailing the literary world and taking it by storm.
Looking forward to a weekend of engaging conversations and lots of literary fun!
