Often the most predictable of books, wedding-day crime thrillers usually revolve around the missing Paige. Marry plot and suspense with today’s Groupon: £7.50 for a ticket to a choice of talks at Althorp Literary Festival.
Embarking upon its ninth annual outing, the Althorp Literary Festival boasts an impressive line-up of some prominent contemporary authors, including Michael Frayn, Alison Weir, Anthony Beevor, Anne Somerset and Brian Sewell, as well as celebrations of Dickens’ bicentennial, and dazzling performances from Stowe school’s Jazz Band and The Great American Songbook.
About The Event
A plethora of twenty-seven bookish types will be present in one-hour time slots over the weekend to discuss their most recent works. Giving readings from and fielding questions about their books, a library of authors as diverse as Joanna Weinberg, Kate Williams and John Challis relate their experiences of issues and events, ranging from culinary tips to regal retrospectives, and the highs and lows of a life as an iconic comedy actor.
The ancestral home of the Spencer family since 1508, the Althorp House estate encompasses 14,000 acres of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Norfolk countryside. With ornate lodgings including the Picture Gallery, Great Room and chandelier-adorned Marlborough Room, it provides an intimate setting for the literary festival. Author slots run for an hour a time through the weekend, from a 10.30am to 7.30pm, 6pm, and 4.30pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday respectively.
Talk times: Friday 10.30am-7.30pm, Sat 10.30am-6pm, and Sun 10.30am-4.30pm
