I hope you are all well and sufficiently stocked up with some literary delights to get your teeth into. The comfort and distraction provided by reading seem sorely needed seeing as we’ve reached that point in November where the nights are drawing in, the leaves are slowly disappearing from the trees and the weather has been pretty grim (did anyone else get stuck on the flooded A14 for hours this week? I feel your pain…) Luckily we have something just around the corner to add some joy and sparkle to our everyday lives – Advent! The countdown to Christmas begins… and here at the Felixstowe Book Festival we some exciting news regarding a festive tonic to those rainy mornings and dark evenings.
Following the success of last year’s ‘a-carol-a-day’ advent calendar, we have decided *deep breath* to launch the 2019 Felixstowe Book Festival Advent Calendar. This time we are heading back to our literary roots with the addition of holly and mistletoe, of course. Behind each Advent door you will find a Christmas book. With stories, poems and tales ranging from those for the very young to the very old with everything in between, there will be a yuletide offering for everyone over the course of December. Keep your eyes peeled on our blog throughout Advent to see which literary treat will be delivered each day. We hope you enjoy the power and the magic of books this Christmastime.
