Dulwich Literary Festival returns from 6th - 13th November with a stellar line-up of speakers. We hope that there is something that catches your eye - whether itís Natalie Haynesís feminist retelling of the story of Troy or Emma Smithís insightful & innovative take on Shakespeare. Or come along to listen to the brilliant novelists Louise Doughty (author of Apple Tree Yard, adapted into a hit BBC series) & Howard Jacobson (Booker Prize winner) talk about their work.

For kids, we have a fun-filled event with the fabulous Konnie Huq, including quizzes, games and exploding science experiments! Finally, to close the Festival, we are honoured to have Jung Chang (author of the international bestseller Wild Swans) with us, speaking about her new book, Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister - a group biography of the Soong sisters, three extraordinary women who helped shape twentieth-century China.
