Lewisham Literary Festival 2011, September 9th - 16th

The full programme for the Lewisham Literary Festival is now live. Even without the children's events it's a big deal, with events ranging from performance poetry to talks by authors including crime writers Oliver Harris and Samuel Bonner and Booker long-listed Samantha Harvey.

The organisers hope it can become an established annual fixture and they're certainly setting the bar high in their first year.
