Literary Leicester 2013

Literary Leicester has been fantastic this year – I’m particularly pleased with myself because I managed to go to almost everything. It’s all been so good it’s hard to choose the best but I did enjoy listening to Amitav Ghosh (who came all the way from India for the event) talking about his character based approach to writing, Jo Shapcott reading her bee poems, Michael Schmidt religious explorations and the sheer energy of Paula Byrne was astounding. Sadly Antonia Fraser was taken ill on her way up so we didn’t get a chance to see her. Luckily it’s not over yet…I’m just off to see Roger McGough and tonight we’re going to be treated to an evening with Michael Frayn
