The Guernsey Literary Festival is more than just an ordinary Lit Fest. In addition to the expected speeches and lectures, visitors can choose from a Graphic Novel exhibition, a Business Breakfast, a Music Night or even an Alice in Wonderland-themed tea party in Guernsey’s Historic Market Buildings. The Guernsey Literary Festival has something for everyone!
If you love books, a short break on the beautiful island of Guernsey for the Literary Festival is a must! The festival features an exciting array of novelists, journalists, columnists and TV personalities and promises to be a week that will delight visitors to the island.
Amongst dozens of others, this year’s festival features Will Self, the controversial journalist who proudly professes that he ‘writes to astonish people.’ The Guardian described Self’s eleventh novel, Shark, as ‘intellectually dazzling and emotionally frazzling.' On the other end of the spectrum is poet and international bestselling writer of psychological crime fiction Sophie Hannah, another speaker who is bound to be popular. And writer A.L Kennedy is also a stand-up comedian, making her events both informative and amusing!
The Guernsey Literary Festival takes place in the bustling and picturesque harbour town of St Peter Port where visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to delicious seafood restaurants and VAT-free shopping. Now in its fourth year, the Guernsey Literary Festival has established itself as a friendly and intimate affair, making it a perfect choice for first time visitors to the island.
