For the past ten years, the Oundle Festival of Literature has celebrated the love of great literature over a week-long festival in March. This is changing.
In our eleventh year, in order to spread out more widely the opportunity to meet our favourite authors, the Festival of Literature has decided to hold lots of one-off events throughout the year. They will be planned and hosted to the same standard you've been used to - but they will no longer be packed into one frantic week.
Kid Lit remains at the heart of the Festival, of course, and will continue to be a week-long programme in March 2014:
- 10th March - Shoo Rayner
- 11th March - Tommy Donbavand
- 12th March - Stephen Waterhouse
- 13th March - Elen Caldecott
- 14th March - Emily Gravett
Schools can continue to look forward to their pupils entering the Children's Writing Competition and meeting some of their literary heroes and heroines in person.
