One of the best things to do as the nights grow darker and longer is to snuggle up under a blanket with a new book. We’ve always been a family of readers, and so when the 2018 Wells Festival of Literature was announced, I knew that I had to let you know all about it.
The first Wells Festival of Literature took place in 1992. Before this, the Cheltenham Literary Festival had been the only literary festival in South West England. Ever since then, Wells has been home to a festival every year, seeing literary stars such as Terry Pratchett, Andrew Motion, and even Queen of Baking herself, Mary Berry!
This year is set to be even more exciting, with authors of all genres speaking at the festival. I’m particularly thrilled to see that Adam Kay (author of This is Going to Hurt) and Matt Haig (author of Reasons to Stay Alive) are both going to be presenting. I’d better book my tickets, and quickly too!
