It’s the time of year when book festivals start, carrying on until the Autumn.
If you go to one or two, do let us know, and tell us about the highlights.. They are really all over the place now, so you’ll struggle not to find one!
I have just had a marvellous weekend at the Words by the Water book festival in Keswick, on the shores of Lake Derwentwater.
If you haven’t heard of it, I would urge you to visit next year. It lasts for 10 days, and takes place at the Theatre by the Lake, just outside Keswick… It is quite small, so nothing on the lines of Cheltenham, but well worth a visit ( not least for the magnificent scenery all around)
Other festivals I am planning on going to this year are the Ledbury Poetry Festival, Oxford Literary Festival, Cheltenham and  Southwold.  Should keep me out of mischief!!
So don’t forget to tell us about your literary adventures!
