I’m looking forward to the first Shrewsbury Literature Festival. On the Friday 25th November I’ll be interviewing Jonathan Coe about his new novel Number 11 in the festival’s first ever event. Here’s the info…
“Jonathan Coe is SFL’s first Patron and we are delighted that he will be with us over the Festival weekend. He is the author of numerous novels, including “What a Carve Up!”, “The Rotters’ Club” and the Shropshire-based “The Rain before It Falls“.
Jonathan was born in Birmingham and spent many happy childhood holidays in Shropshire. He tells us that he is looking forward to returning to Shrewsbury for the festival in November.
Jonathan’s latest novel is “Number 11” and he will be discussing this book and many other things with the writer, Paul McVeigh, in our very first event!”
On Saturday 26th November I’ll be running a writing workshop and then reading from and talking about The Good Son at 5pm.
I hope to see some of you there.
One thought on “25/26 Nov, Shrewsbury Literature Festival”
Wish I could come. I translated Jonathan Coe for a radio show during the Cognac literary festival a few years ago. He’s a great author and an interesting man. Have fun.
