Latest events announced for Huddersfield Literature Festival 2018:

More Events added for you to book...
HLF2018 welcomes BBC Radio 2 Broadcaster Jeremy Vine
Snap up your tickets to see Jeremey Vine at the Town Hall on 13 March

Jeremy Vine: What I Learnt: What My Listeners Say – and Why We Should Take Notice

Date: Tuesday 13 March, 7.30pm
Venue: Huddersfield Town Hall

Sponsored by:
Celebrated broadcaster and journalist, presenter of BBC1’s EggheadsPoints of View and the election graphics, and unforgettable competitor on Strictly Come Dancing 2015, Jeremy Vine lifts the lid on Britain today in an evening of chat, anecdotes and humour.
This event will have live subtitling by Stagetext to give deaf, deafened or hard of hearing audiences access to the event. The event has allocated seating, we recommend you book seats in Rows G or H for the best view of the screen
Tickets to these events could make great Christmas Presents...

In addition to our Jeremy Vine news, we've added three more events to our current listing on our new website, which we think would make great last-minute gifts for book lovers of any type. Alternatively, treat yourself: at such reasonable prices you wouldn't want to miss out on such fantastic events.
Good News: You can now use our secure WorldPay payment option to buy your tickets, in addition to PayPal.

Dine with Crime
With Linda Green, Liz Mistry & Cath Staincliffe

Date: Saturday 17 March, 12.30-2pm

It would be criminal to miss our first ever Crime Lunch, where you can enjoy murderously good food and talks from three arresting crime fiction writers!

Announcing two of our 'In Conversation' events for 2018...

Helen Pankurst In Conversation

with Joanne Harris

Date: Saturday 17 March, 5pm-6pm
Venue: Huddersfield Central Library
To mark the 100th anniversary of voting rights for women (over 30 and who owned property), the award-winning author Joanne Harris will talk to Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst and a leading women’s rights campaigner in her own right. Helen’s new book, Deeds Not Words, charts how women’s lives have changed over the past century and offers a powerful and positive argument for the way forward.

Joanne Harris In Conversation

with David Barnett

Date: Saturday 17 March, 7pm-8pm
Venue: Huddersfield Central Library
The internationally bestselling author Joanne Harris chats to journalist and author David Barnett about her latest publications. Originally written in short form as a #Storytime live Twitter story, A Pocketful of Crows is a dark and magical story of love jealousy and revenge. Joanne will also talk about her love of Norse mythology and how it inspired her fantasy novels, including The Testament of Loki, due out later in 2018
Special Offer: Book both of these events at a discount
