Hey! It's booktime:
Organiser Matt Holland launches
The Swindon Festival of Literature 2007
 
At the programme launch of the The Swindon Festival of Literature yesterday [14 March 2007] at Borders book store, organiser Matt Holland announced that the 14th festival will be "enjoyable, interesting, serious, unpredictable, funny, and very memorable."

Starting on 7 May 2007, invited guests this year include former Prime Minister Sir John Major; BBC Correspondent, George Alagiah; barrister, Michael Mansfield; as well as Apprentice winner, Michelle Dewberry.
 
Plus lots, lots more.
 
With over 50 speakers over the 13 days of the Festival, there will be three or more events each day, at midday, teatime, and in the evening.

These include poetry sessions that are numerous and various; storytelling indoors and out; first-time literary film slots; and even, two family-orientated days.

The festival wouldn't also be the festival without its opening day bringing in the dawn on May 7th.
