Stroud Book Festival brings the best in new writing from some of the finest novelists, non-fiction writers, poets, children’s authors and storytellers from Gloucestershire and beyond.
We are delighted to be joined this year by Mary Portas in conversation about her new book, “Work Like a Woman”; Will McCallum Head of Oceans at Greenpeace, on how to give up plastic; acclaimed novelist, Patrick Gale, talking about his latest novel, “Take Nothing With You”. We have former Labour Home Secretary, Alan Johnson, on his memoir “In My Life”; and authors, Christie Watson and Sam Guglani. Prue Leith and Oz Clarke will both have events at the Festival, providing a fabulous foodie finale!
Events for younger readers will include acclaimed illustrators Tony Ross and Michael Foreman as well as an entire day dedicated to schools across the 5 Valleys and much, much more!
Stroud Book Festival is also proud to stage an event entitled “Refugee Tales” in support of Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group and of displaced people everywhere.
