Today’s the day! Our festival is finally here and we are all very excited here at the virtual festival HQ. We hope you are too.
As you know, our festival this year is entirely online.
We have a whole host of Live Interviews, pre-recorded author Q&As, plus video insights into the day in the life of an author in lockdown. What more could you wish for? And for our younger festival fans we have drawalongs and a story reading, such fun!
Don’t forget to take a look at our guide to viewing our Live events here: https://felixstowebookfestival.co.uk/how-to-view-our-fbf-live-stream-videos.
For anyone not using Facebook, head to the Online section of our website over the weekend where you will be able to view the festival. You can find this here: https://felixstowebookfestival.co.uk/online
If you feel like having a good read, have you had a look at our latest blog series, the Castaway Library?
Imagine if you were stranded on a desert island, with nothing but three books to keep you entertained. Which books would you pick?
We posed this very question to several authors who would have, under normal circumstances, been guests at our original 2020 festival, and recieved some totally fascinating responses. Look out for the castaway libraries of Edward Parnell, Kit Yates and Louise Millar.
