The journey of a lifetime starts with the turning of a page

Is there anything better than a good book?

OK, chocolate maybe – but who’s to say you can’t share the love? They both feed the soul and let’s face it, at least with a book you’re more likely to expand your horizons than your waistline!

Crime thrillers or children’s tales, romance or riddles, history or heroes – whatever your pleasure, you’ll find all the inspiration you need to start (or continue!) your own journey of a lifetime when the Newark Book Festival comes to town next week…

From 6.30pm to 9pm on Friday 14 July, 9.30am to 7.45pm on Saturday 15 July and 10am to 4.15pm on Sunday 16 July, Newark will be buzzing with book-related activities for all the family and, as you’d expect, the Girls Around Town will be in the thick of it!

Getting the weekend off to a great start, Fiona will be joined by fellow poet Jane Wyles for an evening of Wine and Words at Gannets Bistrot on Friday, then bringing it to a close when she talks to best-selling author Natasha Pulley about her new novel, The Bedlam Stacks on Sunday.

On Saturday, you’ll find Tina in the chair for two events, interviewing members of the Women’s Fiction Panel from 1.45pm and uncovering the story behind Centaur when she chats to Declan Murphy and Ami Rao from 3.30pm.

Back in the studio on Sunday morning, she’ll be holding the fort with Sue as June takes a quick tour of some of the Festival venues. Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon for live updates and interviews throughout the show – and don’t forget to check out the programme for full details of what to see, do and hear in Newark next weekend…
