Join us at the Emerald Street Literary Festival

ES_LITFEST_AUTHORS.jpg

You know us, by now. Stylist will always get excited about books and reading and authors. And so do many of you.

Which is why we wanted to tell you about an event our sister title, Emerald Street, is putting on in June.

The Emerald Street Literary Festival will take place in the Royal Geographical Society in London on Saturday June 11.

There will be so much going on – all of it programmed by Emerald Street’s editor, Anna Fielding.  Kate Mosse, the founder of The Bailey's Prize for Women’s Fiction, will be talking to some of this year’s finalists. Jessie Burton, author of the bestselling The Miniaturist will be reading and answering questions. Activist Caroline Criado-Perez and author Marina Lewycka will be asking what the EU has done for women: worth hearing just 11 days before the referendum.

The tickets are just £20 and they’re selling fast. Get yours here

It’s how we want to spend a Saturday. Come and join in.

Maggie O’Farrell

Maggie O'Farrell is one of Britain's most-loved authors. She joins Emerald Street to talk about her writing life and to read from and discuss her seventh novel This Must Be the Place. We’re really looking forward to hearing what Maggie has to say.

Faber Academy

We’ve teamed up with Faber Academy to offer two workshops for those of you who would like to become authors themselves. The sessions will be run by Faber Academy’s Richard Skinner, Director of the Fiction Programme. A great chance to sample these highly prestigious courses.
