Britain's most easterly literary festival is set to return to town next month - and organisers are hoping that book lovers will descend on Lowestoft Library in good numbers.

The popular annual literary festival will be run for the third successive year at Lowestoft Library, with five authors set to give presentations of their work for the enjoyment of visitors ands residents.

Television presenter and author Paul Heiney, renowned sports writer and speaker Brian Scovell, popular local historian Ivan Bunn, picture book writer and illustrator Gillian McClure and young adult novelist Tasha O’Neill will be at Lowestoft Library for the event on Saturday, October 3.

The festival is being organised once more by the Friends of Lowestoft Library and library staff.

Di Humphrey, chairman of the friends, said: “The Friends of Lowestoft Library – who aim to support and promote Lowestoft Library in the community – are assisting the library staff to run a third literary festival.

“The first two literary festivals were extremely successful and brought many people into the library.

“We are hoping to repeat that this year.”

Tickets for the Lowestoft Library Literary Festival are on sale, with pre-booking advised.

They are available at the library on Clapham Road South, by email via friendsoflowestoftlibrary@gmail.com or by calling the library on 01502 674660.
