Crawley Wordfest 2013

A number of best-selling writers and poets will be performing in Crawley Library this month as part of the 2013 WordFest.

The annual event, now in its third year, showcases leading and upcoming authors at the branch to promote reading and writing.

The festival, which runs until 28th March , includes the Beach Hut Writers – a group from East and West Sussex who have sold more than one million books between them.

The panel, made up of Julia Crouch, Simon Toyne, Sarah Rayner, Susannah Quinn and Kate Harrison, will be speaking about becoming published novelists on Tuesday 19th March.

Tickets for the event, which starts at 7:30pm, costs £3 each and are available from the library.

Several of the county’s leading black and ethnic minority writers will also be reading poems on Wednesday 20th March.

From 7:30pm authors will be speaking at the free event about how music originating from Africa helped shape their work.

A new book showcasing childhood in Crawley since the 1950s is being launched at the branch at 3pm on Thursday 21st March.

It is part of the Road To Crawley Project: put together by residents using people’s personal stories and old photographs.

Young readers can also meet American writer Jeff Norton, author of best-selling children’s book MetaWars, on Saturday 23rd March.

He will be joined by Brighton-based novelist Helen Dennis at the free event which runs from 9am to 5pm.

Meanwhile Nicola Upson, the festival’s author of the month, will speak about her latest novel on Wednesday 24th March.

The fiction writer will be answering questions on her new book, Fear in the Sunlight, about film director Alfred Hitchcock’s movie plot to murder Hollywood’s most popular actresses.

Tickets for the session, which starts at 7:30pm, are free but need to be booked in advance.

Lionel Barnard, County Council Deputy Leader responsible for the Library Service, said: “We are extremely pleased to help celebrate this year’s WordFest by bringing some of the country’s most popular writers to Crawley.

“It is also an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in becoming a published author to get first-hand advice from the experts.

“There will be something for everyone and you do not need to be a member of the library to attend.”
