Book festival returns to Clapham

April 16, 2018 by  

It has been announced that the Book Festival will be taking place in Clapham again this spring, marking the third successive year that it has been held there.

Once again, the Clapham Library and Omnibus Theatre is set to serve as the venue for this festival, and a strong roster of writers has been lined up to appear. This includes screen-writers, novelists and literary agents, as well as Michael Glover, a poet who lives in Clapham and presents the BBC Radio show Poetry Extra.

Alongside his poetry writing and presenting, Glover also works as an editor and art critic, so he will have plenty of areas of interest to discuss during his appearance at the festival, but he is just one of the impressive roster that has been assembled.

Dame Margaret Drabble will also be attending this year’s event, as will Natasha Cooper, the bestselling writer of crime novels. The festival is set to be advertised in the local area via promotional materials that will be available in shops and other Clapham businesses.

Places offering flyer printing may well be called on to provide these, but those who are interested in going along to the festival will also be able to get information about it online. Tickets for the event, which will take place on Saturday 12th May, can be bought over the internet.
