Now in its 14th edition, Birmingham Book Festival will be kicking off this year with a bevy of shindigs, including all night writing sessions, pop-up book shops and workshops; spanning everything from blogging in Libya to a session on finding your own Narrative voice by local print house Tindal Street Press.
The main festival gets things rolling on the 29th September, with a Launch Party on the 4th October, that has associated and Fringe events taking place all the way up to the 13th October. There is so much happening, that you really are best to check out the programme or their Twitter feed.
…but in my opinion, the unparalleled option to keep abreast of the fest, is to download their app! iPhone and iPad only at present, the app will give you maps, listings and news to your device. Pretty nifty.
