Ilkley Literature Festival Special Event: Simon Mayo 24 April

Ilkley Literature Festival have a special event with Simon Mayo coming up on the 24th of April:

Win Simon Mayo's New Book!

To celebrate our first event of 2018 we have two copies of Simon Mayo’s new book, Mad Blood Stirring, to give away. Book tickets to see Simon at the Kings Hall on 24 April by 5pm on Friday 20 April to be in with a chance of winning (don't worry... if you've already booked you'll automatically be entered into the competition).

Mad Blood Stirring tells the story African-American sailors held captive in Dartmoor Prison in 1815 following the Second War of American Independence. It is a look at a forgetton piece of Anglo-American history that is guaranteed to have you gripped and wondering how you have never heard this story before.

With performances and shows from Linton Kwesi Johnson, Luke Wright, Kate Fox and Roger Robinson, plus a family poetry show, workshops and free drop in activities for children and families, Words in the City is offering up a packed weekend for fans of poetry and spoken word of all ages.
