Sunderland Libraries Literature Festival 2021


Sunderland Libraries Services are pleased to announce the 2021 annual Literature Festival Programme.

This year we have a mix of physical and virtual events, where you can pop  along to the library or engage with at your leisure, settle down with your favourite snacks and a drink and enjoy!

Celebrating National Poetry Day and National Libraries Week, amongst others, this year's programme, again promises a wide range of inspirational authors, including popular local contributors, with exciting events for all ages, featuring live online performances and author Q&As, workshops, taster sessions and storytelling.
