The third Shrewsbury Festival of Literature takes place over the weekend of 23rd to 25th November and will once again bring a wide variety authors and poets to the town.

We are, yet again, taking advantage of our lovely town and all of our events, with perhaps one exception, are taking place within the loop of the river in some lovely venues.

As in previous years we will be asking our guest speakers to "tell the stories inside"...why, and how, they came to chose the things about which they have written.

The programme will be ready soon - so watch this space!
