Get This – Battersea Literature Festival
Being both a booklover and a south west Londoner I’m very excited that Gertrude & Ivy along with with Waterstones are a part of the Battersea Literature Festival this year. Previously we were involved with the SW11 Literary Festival but it has gone through a rebrand and is back again – and I for one am very very grateful.
There are over 20 events happening from the 1st -15th of September with a huge range of different authors and publishers hosting talks and workshops. The line up is absolutely incredible and I can’t wait to see Francesca Martinez speak – such an inspiring woman!
I’m also very excited to go to David Mitchell’s event – he is one of my favourite authors. I’ve read Cloud Atlas so many times that I’ve lost count – one of my favourite quotes from the book is “Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.” On that note – it’s so wonderful to work with the Clapham Junction Town Centre Partnership again – we had such a great time working with them on the Northcote Road Summer Fete and the Fabulous Feast.
