Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful Mothering Sunday. The big question for us here at the Felixstowe Book Festival is (of course) literary themed… Who is your favourite literary mother? Is it Marmee, or Mrs Bennet? Mrs Weasley or Moominmama? Whilst Becky Sharp may not be the best advert for motherhood, Ma Ingals, of Little House on the Prairie fame, is a fearless pioneer relentlessly forging and defending her family’s life.
As you have gathered over the past few months, we have slowly been releasing information about our 2019 events. Here are a few that we think might be a perfect treat for mum over the festival weekend!
James Runcie, The Road to Grantchester
Lalage Snow, War Gardens
Elly Griffiths, In Conversation with Nicola Upson
Alan Johnson, In My Life
Simon Heffer, The Age of Decadence
Olivia Beirne, Daisy Buchanan and Beth O’Leary, Fizz and Fiction
We hope you like our selection and please peruse more at your leisure! Have a wonderful Sunday!
