St Ives Literature Festival

Just thought I'd give you a quick preview of the events planned for the 2009 festival.

2008 saw the first St Ives Literature Festival and was a great success.

I popped into The Salt House Gallery a few of days ago to see Bob Devereux the organiser.

The planned dates for 2009 are Saturday 2nd to Saturday 9th May.

No events are fixed yet but there will no doubt be opening and closing parties on the two Saturdays.

Poetry in the Square will take place daily in Norway Square or The Salt House if wet.

Charles Shaar Murray and Anna Chen will be here.
Hopefully we'll get to enjoy "Everything I Know About Rock and Roll Part Two" from Charlie.
Also Anna's poetry and readings.

The usual local stalwarts will no doubt put in an appearance somewhere - Rod Bullimore, Kelvin Bowers, Bernie Davis and more.

Plus of course the inimitable Bob himself !

Discussions are going on with a number of publishers, writers and poets.

I'll post updates here and update the festival website once we know more early in 2009:
