We're delighted to announce the final line-up of authors who'll be appearing at Falmouth Book Festival 2023.
This year's festival is running from Monday 16th through to Sunday 22nd October and we're excited to be joined by a diverse range of novelists, travel writers, chefs, essayists, poets and comedians.
Our fiction headliners include two former Booker Prize winners in the shape of Eleanor Catton and Ben Okri. We've got some great Cornwall-themed events with Tim Hannigan, Catrina Davies and Raynor Winn talking about ideas of Cornishness, chefs Emily Willis and James Strawbridge celebrating the best of Cornish food, and an event with celebrated novelist Louis de Bernieres, who's opening the festival with a conversation about about his new novel, Light Over Liskeard. And if it's laughs you're after we have Radio 4 ranconteur and stand-up, Robin Ince sharing his bibliomania and comedian and poet Tim Key who'll be reading from his new collection and being interviewed onstage.
This year's festival would not be possible without the support of Falmouth University, the Falmouth BID, the Falmouth Bookseller, St Michael's Resort, Reynolds & Slater Opticians and Heather & Lay Estate Agents.
