We’re just days away from Super Saturday at the Margate Bookie.
On Saturday 19 August festival-goers can look forward to highlights including:
Paul Basset Davies – Radio 4’s Jeremy Hardy returns to Margate to interview the comedy writer Paul Bassett Davies about his book Dead Writers in Rehab.
Barney Hoskyns, the leading music writer and critic, will read from his latest novel, Never Enough, which charts his relationship with music and drugs. Barney will talk openly about how he overcame his addiction to heroin.
During the Unbound Pledge Party, six authors – including Catherine Spencer, the former rugby union player who captained England at the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup – will pitch their books. It’s a literary ‘Dragon’s Den’.
