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.
