Sunday 7 May 2023

Crowne Plaza Hotel

The Festival’s annual celebration of writers-to-watch gives a platform to two exciting new names on the literary fiction scene. Tom Crewe’s The New Life is a tender and powerful tale of passion, progress and personal freedom that re-imagines the lives of the two Victorian men who published the first English medical textbook on homosexuality. It has already received enormous critical acclaim for its nuance and forensic insight into love. Sarah Hardy's novel The Walled Garden tenderly explores a marriage complicated by the horrors of World War II and a new, forbidden love.
