Southwold Library Manager Charlotte Clark said: “I’m really excited about this year’s programme, which is bigger and better than ever. The event is a big part of the Suffolk calendar now and I hope as many people as possible come along to Southwold and enjoy it.”

Tickets cost £5 per talk, £15 per day or £30 for the weekend (lunches not included). Lunches with the authors cost £10, provided by Café 51 and Mark’s Fish Shop.
