"Celebrating Fabulous Stories...."

AND all very different, but that's the beauty of a Literature Festival: here we had stories to suit everyone, whatever their taste or their moods....
Claire Tomalin, discussing her latest book:"Charles Dickens: A Life".... talked of the life, times and works of Dickens, bringing these things into sharp clear focus. Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden told us stories from " The Iliad", making a packed house absolutely spellbound, and on the last day of LitFest, we celebrated Jane Austen in Words and Music, with actors Robert Powell and Elizabeth Garvie, who led us in dignified fashion through Austen's life and, of course, her novels: from her first, " Sense and Sensibility" to her last uncompleted novel, "Sanditon".
All these events gave us stories to learn from, to wallow in and most of all to enjoy....
