Jessie Burton - Event Cancelled

The Marlborough Literature Festival Committee regrets that the Jessie Burton talk on 2 October 2016 at 3pm has been cancelled, due to personal reasons of the author. Ticket money will be refunded.

Marlborough's 2016 Big Town Read

Back by popular demand, Marlborough LitFest in partnership with The Reading Agency and World Book Night (23 April) have unveiled their ‘Big Town Read’ author for 2016. Following suggestions from local book groups Elizabeth Buchan was eventually chosen with her novel I Can’t Begin to Tell You which appears on this year’s World Book Night list.

Why we believe in paying our Authors

We've always paid our authors, right from the beginning. We believe we should as we're asking them to do a job and they may need to prepare and take time away from writing.
