Marlborough LitFest 2018: major contributors William Boyd, Kate Mosse & Katie Hickman are announced

 

Kate Mosse :: William Boyd :: Katie Hickman Kate Mosse :: William Boyd :: Katie Hickman More names have been revealed for this year’s ninth Marlborough LitFest (28-30 September.)  They include acclaimed novelist William Boyd, bestselling author Kate Mosse, historical fiction author Katie Hickman. 

 

Acclaimed contemporary novelist William Boyd has a new book, Love is Blind, set at the end of the 19th century and following the fortunes of a young Scottish musician across Paris, St Petersburg and Edinburgh. He will be talking on Saturday, 29 September, at Marlborough Town Hall.

Bestselling author and co-founder of the Women’s Prize for Fiction, Kate Mosse will talk about the first novel in her new historical series - set in sixteenth century Languedoc, The Burning Chambers. (Saturday, 29 September, Marlborough Town Hall.)

Katie Hickman blends historical fiction with thriller in her new novel, The House at Bishopsgate, the final book in her trilogy set in seventeenth century London. (Saturday, 29 September, The White Horse Bookshop.)

As well as these star attractions, the LitFest will see the return of the Translation Duel and of the Hiscox Debut Authors.   Back by popular demand, The Translation Duel, chaired again by editor and translator Danny Hahn, along with two French translators. (Sunday, 30 September, Marlborough Town Hall.)

Marlborough LitFest is passionate about supporting emerging talent and is grateful for the annual support from Hiscox Insurance for its Debut Authors event - this year featuring new authors Adelle Stripe and Mick Kitson.   (Sunday, 30 September at The White Horse Bookshop.)

Adelle Stripe's debut novel, Black Teeth and a Brilliant Smile, is inspired by the life and work of playwright Andrea Dunbar.  She has also published three collections of poems.

Mick Kitson is a journalist turned teacher.  His debut novel - Sal -was published last month to enthusiastic reviews.  It is told in the voice of thirteen year-old Sal who is on the run in Scotland with her younger sister - on the run from a terrible secret.

These names join already confirmed authors Max Hastings, Lois Pryce, Alan Johnson and this year’s Golding Speaker opening the Festival on 28 September, Rose Tremain.

Kay Newman of the Marlborough LitFest said: “The LitFest is committed to bringing writing of the best quality to Marlborough and we are delighted with our mix of new, emerging authors and more familiar household names as well as translators to this year’s Festival.”

 

The complete programme will be available in July, when the Box Office opens.
