2020: The Year everything is a bit different...
We're making the best of the ongoing situation, and the ever-changing restrictions and guidelines, and moving the Birmingham Literature Festival online this autumn.
This autumn will be different - and, hopefully, we'll be back in 2021 for live events in person. We hope you enjoy this year's festival, which you can enjoy and take part in from the comfort of your home.
We've commissioned and curated a podcasts series talking to some of the most interesting writers working today.
The podcast feed will be available from 28 September, with the first episode published on Friday 2 October, and weekly thereafter.
Birmingham Lit Fest Presents...
We're hosting monthly online author events, featuring some of the most exciting and discussion-provoking books of 2021. You can buy your ticket and watch live from home.
The first event is Thursday, 22 April, 7pm, with journalist and writer Sathnam Sanghera discussing Empireland: How Imperialism Has Shaped Modern Britain with Sara Wajid.
