Bradford on Avon Book Fiesta has bounced back from the Covid-19 pandemic by announcing its line-up for 2021.

Following on from last year’s successful online launch, the organisers are celebrating popular fiction for 2021 through November and December.

With a focus on entertaining readers, events for children and writing for mental health, this year’s programme comprises both virtual events and interviews.

It also has live events in venues around Bradford on Avon and features a plethora of international and local authors from all genres.

They include best-selling romance writer Lizzie Lane, Fiesta director and author Gabrielle Malcolm, both at The Swan Hotel.

Trowbridge-based historical novelist Matthew Harffy is giving a talk at the Kettlesmith Brewery on Friday, November 5 from 7pm-9pm.

Saturday events at Bradford on Avon Library include workshops with Jasbinder Bilan, Robert Starling and Alex Cotter.For more information, go to
