The 2019 programme is currently being created and will bring an intriguing collection of events, celebrating Exeter’s diverse range of literature.
Exeter Literary Festival 2019 is the second festival of its kind and follows a successful 2018 festival. The festival is run by a team of volunteers and is a not for profit organisation.
Sarah Turner, author, freelance writer and blogger said
“As an Exeter resident, author and book lover, it is both an honour and a privilege to become a Patron of Exeter LiteraryFestival. I greatly enjoyed taking part in the inaugural ExeLitFest last year and I’m looking to supporting the festival as it grows this year and for many years to come.”
Dr Todd Gray MBE said
“It is a great honour to be chosen one of the patrons of Exeter’s Literary Festival. I remember very clearly the sense of empowerment I had when I read my first book and I am keen to help the festival celebrate the love of literature in all its forms. There is a great team of volunteers preparing for the events this November and I am confident that this year’s programme will be even more successful than that of 2018.”
The festival are working with several partners across the city to deliver a range of opportunities through events to meet well known authors, engaging talks and debates that will challenge and excite everyone. Further information can be found here.
