Ilkley Literature Festival 3 – 19 October

We are looking forward to Ilkley Literature Festival which has its usual brilliant line up of events and authors. There will be over 200 events.

Headliners include Booker Prize-winning author Margaret Atwood, presenting, Maddaddam, the final instalment of the internationally acclaimed dystopian trilogy. Ilkley Literature Festival veteran, Will Self, will introduce his new novel Shark, released in September, featuring the return of psychiatrist Zack Busner.  

Appearing for the first time in Ilkley will be New York Times bestseller Jodi Picoult presenting her latest novel, Leaving Time. Former poet laureate Sir Andrew Motion will open the festival with an exploration of poetry and prose as he introduces his new novel, The New World, an adventure set 10 years on from Treasure Island.

Much loved poet Michael Rosen will share his thoughts on education beyond the classroom with Good Ideas, How to be Your Child’s (and Your Own) Best Teacher.
