The London Literature Festival has been running since 24th May and will continue running until 5th June 2013 at the Southbank Centre London. This annual festival brings together international, world class poets, authors and speakers representing the spectrum of creative disciplines for more than a week of talks and events.
Various literary stars join us at Southbank Centre this season at two prize-reading events – the 2013 Man International Booker Prize Readings and the Women’s Prize for Fiction Readings and celebrated biographer Claire Tomalin presents five lectures on literary icons such as Thomas Hardy and Jane Austen and best-selling authors including Barbara Kingsolver, Audrey Niffenegger, Lionel Shriver, James Salter and William Dalrymple read from and discuss their work.
Such literary heavyweights are joined by luminaries from other areas of arts and culture, including actor Rupert Everett, fine artists Gavin Turk and Cornelia Parker, designer Tom Dixon and musicians Jarvis Cocker and Ute Lemper – the latter singing Pablo Neruda's love poems. For the full line-up,visit the Southbank website.
We mix things up with live poetry, short plays, music based on Pablo Neruda’s poetry and discussions on fame, communities and the graphic novel.
