THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 13TH OCTOBER 2013
The Wimbledon BookFest, extended to 16 days in 2013, has a strong cast of literary and cultural heavyweights lined up this year including author Roddy Doyle, dancer Darcey Bussell and journalist David Goodhart who joins Channel 4's Faisal Islam to discuss his study of the reality of UK immigration. The south west London literary festival has welcomed a raft of top authors since its debut in 2007, including the likes of Salman Rushdie, William Boyd, Michael Morpurgo, AS Byatt and Victoria Hislop. It's a community-driven event which aims to spread a love of reading and writing, and fire the ambition of local writers - young and old. The heart of the festival is a special Big Tent on Wimbledon Common, but author events take place in a variety of venues in and around the local area.
