Roaming the byways of literature

A great day out at Crimefest

Yesterday we went to Crimefest – a real treat for crime fiction fans. We attended fascinating panel discussions, an interview with Jeffery Deaver and some interesting discussions. We also met old acquaintances from previous years and caught up with their news. The day finished with a reception at which the Crime Writers Association announced their awards shortlists.

And, of course, we bought a pile of new books.

Literary festivals of all sorts are popular. There’s a wide choice, from general ones like Bath or Cheltenham, to special interest ones for crime, science fiction, fantasy and romance. There’s always a holiday feel to them and its great mingling with other readers all having a good time.
