    Jackamans Solicitors bring important news on the Felixstowe Book Festival

    As you will probably have heard already, due to the Covid-19 situation the 2020 Felixstowe Book Festival is going to be very different this year.  The 2020 Festival will be entirely on-line, will be completely free of charge, and open to everybody!

    The Festival weekend (27 and 28 June) will still be very exciting with a range of live-streamed author interviews, Q&As, videos, and a virtual Book Club.  People will have the option to watch the proceedings on the Festival website or on the Facebook page (do be sure to ‘like’ and ‘follow’ the Facebook page).

    Prestigious writers confirmed so far include Carol Drinkwater speaking about “The House on the Edge of the Cliff”; Paul French will focus on his Shanghai noir book “City of Devils” but will also talk on China; George Alagiah will speak on his book about South Africa - “The Burning Land”; with a more local view Nick Cottam will discuss “Life on the Deben”, and Harriet Tyce will speak on one of her recent novels.  Nick Holland will take part in the Book Club with his biography on Anne Bronte “Crave the Rose”.

    FBF’s many fans have already enjoyed attending the Festival’s remote Book Club.  With host Ruth Dugdall, the last book enthusiastically discussed by around twenty bookworms was the wonderful “The Giver of Stars” by Jojo Moyes.  The next Book Club event on June 2nd at 7.30 pm will centre on Sally Vickers’ delightful new book “Grandmothers”. 

    Do keep logging on to to be a part of this new, one-of-a-kind event!
