Today on my blog I’m very excited to tell you all about Margate Bookie and some of the fantastic online literary events that they have put together.
Over the next couple of months, Margate Bookie is bringing what it’s best at – community and connection – throughout Kent and into the rest of the world at a time when, lets face it, we could all do with a bit of cheering up.
Known as the friendly lit fest by the sea, Margate Bookie’s open, welcome vibe will be transferred online, with a series of ‘Fireside chat’ events throughout November. With a mix of local authors and those from outside Kent, including Dean Atta and William Shaw topics range from female friendships to feminism, diversity and inclusion to translated fiction, crime writing to bibliotherapy. There really is something for everyone and I’m so happy to be able to grab a glass of wine and join in from the comfort of my own home!
Here’s the line up:

Personally I’m really looking forward to joining Helen Lewis and Abiola Bello for their chat on diversity and inclusion on Thursday 19th November at 7.30pm and I’m very pleased to say that in the next couple of days I will be running a giveaway on Twitter, so that you can win a ticket to join in with this event. So keep your eyes peeled for that and also keep up to date with the latest news and events by following @MargateBookie and @LiterallyPR on Twitter.
Thanks for reading and do let me know which events you’re excited about!
