Friend of the Bookie, Francesca Baker, is bringing her podcasting skills to this year’s Bookie.

Never happier than when in a library, Francesca Baker is a reader, writer and word lover. Everything she does comes from the values of curiosity, creativity, connection and communication.

Throughout the Bookie she’ll be chatting to authors, writers, publishers, readers and book lovers throughout the festival, creating podcasts on the go.

We’ll share the podcasts in the weeks following the event so even if you can’t join us 17-20 August, you can catch up with some of what you have missed.

You can read more about Francesca on her blog and follow her on Twitter.
