SEVENOAKS  LITERARY


2015  PROGRAMME

CELEBRATION        

2015

Newly elected Oxford Professor Poetry Simon Armitage will be among the writers heading for Sevenoaks this autumn for the town’s annual book festival. The Sevenoaks Literary Celebration, now more than a decade old, also includes top novelists Andrew O’Hagan and Kate Mosse, who will bookend the festival, running between September 25 and October 10. Tickets go on sale at Sevenoaks Bookshop on Saturday August 1 and most events cost £9.  The 2015 menu includes a traditional literary lunch and tea, but also an innovative evening of new short stories performed by professional actors, and a film night.


Robert Sackville-West (Lord Sackville) will talk about the background to Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando, which will be followed by a showing of the 1992 film by Sally Potter, starring Tilda Swinton.  Fans of Wolf Hall will get the chance to hear about the real Thomas Cromwell from his biographer Tracy Borman.  The organisers of this year’s festival are delighted to welcome Andrew Lownie, whose long-awaited biography of the spy Guy Burgess is published in October.
