Join us for readings and interviews as some of the most exciting, world class writers gather in King’s Lynn for the 32nd Fiction Festival.

Louise Doughty, Romesh Gunesekera, Jill Dawson, Louis de Bernières,
Guinevere Glasfurd, Jeremy Cameron, Sophie Hannah, DJ Taylor, Rachel Hore.

Many of the writers you might recognise are welcomed back with their new novels.

Sophie Hannah, writer of the continuing Poirot books for the Agatha Christie estate, and master of the psychological thriller, will deliver her new book, Haven’t They Grown.

Louise Doughty’s previous title, Apple Tree Yard, was a massive success and TV mini series after she was last with us in 2016. Her new thriller is Platform Seven. Louis de Bernières will read from his wonderful short stories, Labels. Local authors - no less impressive - are Guinevere Glasfurd and Jill Dawson. His coming-of-age novel, Suncatcher, set in 1960s Ceylon, will be read from and discussed by Romesh Gunesekera. Rachel Hore and D J Taylor return with their new books, The Love Child and The Lost Girls, respectively.
