Liverpool Literary Festival 2019 line-up revealed

The third Liverpool Literary Festival takes place this October with the programme featuring a host of writers.

Brooklyn author – and University of Liverpool Chancellor - Colm Tóibín (pictured above) will deliver the festival lecture on October 11, considering the subject Oscar Wilde, WB Yeats & James Joyce: Three Writers in Search of a Father, while the October 12 line-up includes Andrew Miller, Alan Hollinghurst, Molly Case and Jess Kidd.

The weekend of events features discussions, debates, workshops and readings will come to a conclusion with The Adorno Project’s Brontë Beat, a performance collage weaving the facts of the Yorkshire authors’ lives with the myths of their fiction.

With original songs, film, ambient sounds and spoken word, it explores the multi-faceted world of the Brontës through an electro-pop lens.
