Stylist Literary Festival 2021: sign up for the latest news, author line-up and to get tickets to our month-long event

Are you a self-confessed bookworm? Have you been missing browsing old bookshops and attending in-person author events during the pandemic? Us too, and now Stylist’s first ever online Literary Festival is here to fill the void. The book festival will feature talks by our favourite authors throughout June 2021. 

Here at Stylist we’ve always had a passion for great storytelling and writing that captures our hearts and minds. That’s why this June, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be hosting our first ever month-long literary festival that will celebrate the best new releases in fiction and non-fiction, giving a voice to writers old and new. From Sunday Times bestsellers to Booker Prize nominees, the writers and authors we have lined up are not to be missed.

What to expect:

Starting on 1 June and running until 27 June 2021, we’ll be hosting 20 digital events with the likes of Lisa Taddeo and Raven Leilani taking the virtual stage. To keep it fresh and exciting, all 20 sessions will fall into specific franchises such as Books ’n’ Brunch, Literary Lunches, Beach Books, Bedtime Stories and Brain Boosters. You can expect workshops, panels and key note talks, and we encourage you to come and watch authors you’ve heard of and ones you haven’t - you never know when someone new could spark your imagination or inspire you to write your debut novel.

Where to buy the books we will be discussing: 

As part of the Literary Festival, we’ll be supporting Bookshop.org in their mission to help financially support independent bookshops. After a difficult year of lockdowns and social distancing, local bookshops deserve a bit of love so if you’d like to purchase any of the author’s books, we ask that you do so through the Bookshop.org marketplace.
