Frinton Literary Festival 2010

Sunday 26th September 2010 - Click here for all events on this Day

Time: 10:00

The 9th Frinton Literary Festival takes place from
Friday 24th September until Sunday 26th September 2010.
This year all events will take place at the Golf Club.

Phone: 01255 851505

Friday 24th September – Dan Cruickshank. 8pm. Tickets £7.50

In his latest book, one of our leading historians describes how Georgian London was shaped by the sex industry. He draws on memoirs, newspaper accounts and court records to give us vivid portraits of some of the women who became involved in the world of prostitution. As Dan Cruickshank powerfully argues, these women, and many thousands like them, shaped eighteenth-century London, and they also helped determine its future development.

Saturday 25th – The Philomena Dwyer Lunch. 12.30pm. Tickets £25

Carol Drinkwater, actress and bestselling author, will be talking about her new book ‘Return to the Olive Farm’. Published in July, this will be the sixth of her much-loved memoirs, based on her life on a Provençal olive farm.

Saturday 25th – Reading Group Evening – from 7pm. Tickets £10

Bloomsbury Publishing are bringing us two authors: Marika Cobbold and Jane Rusbridge to read from, talk about and answer questions on their latest novels – ‘Aphrodite’s Workshop for Reluctant Lovers’ and ‘The Devil’s Music’, respectively.

This is a chance for your Book Club / Reading Group to get together with other groups to discuss the book or books and meet the authors. The idea is that you choose one of the books for your group to read and then come along, sit together and talk about the book (and maybe catch up on news as well!!) then have the opportunity to ask the authors anything that may come out of your discussion.

Tickets are £10 which includes one of the books

Sunday 26th – Afternoon Tea with Barbara Trapido at 3pm. Tickets £12.50

Well-loved and respected author Barbara Trapido will be talking about her latest novel ‘Sex and Stravinsky’, a book which throws up the complexity, cruelty and richness of the global world while, as a sequence of personal stories, it comes together like a dance; a masquerade in which things are not always what they seem.

Schools’ Programme
The Frinton Literary Festival is committed to working with the whole community. Last year we took authors into three local primary schools. This year we are delighted to confirm that we have secured authors for all 5 local primary schools and Tendring Technology College.

The authors taking part this year are:

* Alan Gibbons
* Gill Harvey
* Julie Irwin
* Lauren St John
* Leslie Wilson

This festival would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors and the continued goodwill and interest of local residents.

Our Annual Fundraising Quiz Night will be held on Friday
10th September at the McGrigor Hall.

Tickets are £5 per person and tables of 6 are recommended. This includes a ploughman’s supper. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be on sale at very reasonable prices and we would be grateful if you would support the Festival by purchasing drinks from us, rather than bringing your own! We trust you understand this request. Many thanks from the Frinton Literary Festival Committee.
