Literature Festival – Tick

I am so very excited to announce that my Mum and I are going to the Cheltenham Literature Festival this weekend. It was perhaps the New Year’s Bookolution that I was most determined to fulfill and so, when ticket day rolled around on September 1st, I waited 4 long hours on the website before I could even login to attempt to buy some tickets. I don’t mean to be dramatic but I’m pretty sure it would be easier to get Glastonbury tickets or travel to the moon 😉

It was worth it though and we are lucky enough to be attending talks by Kazuo Ishiguro, author of the amazing Never Let Me Go, and Rose Tremain, whose works include the intriguing Sacred Country, a talk about the lure of dystopia and one about Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (which I am secretly hoping will be complete with edible Wonka samples). I tried in vain to get tickets to see Margaret Atwood (if you are reading this Margaret, please please, please make them let me in!) but sadly it was not to be. I will just have to hope she goes again next year or I am going to have to do something embarrassing like stalk her until she signs a book for me.

Hope to see some of you fellow book lovers there.

    I’ve been a few times and loved it, hope you enjoy it too. Sounds like some great authors you’re hearing speak. 🙂

      Thank you very much, I just can’t believe it has taken me until now to go! I can’t wait 🙂
