Suffolk’s libraries will host a number of popular, local and up-and-coming authors during a new festival in March.

The inaugural Suffolk Libraries BookFest features events throughout the month in locations across the county including Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket.

Authors including Suffolk-based Erica James, military fiction writer Simon Scarrow and internationally acclaimed Harriet James will be giving talks about their work with additional workshops.

Suffolk Libraries general manager, Alison Wheeler, said: “I’m delighted with the programme we’ve put together and am looking forward to welcoming some top authors to our libraries.”

On March 14 from 7pm Erica James will be chatting with BBC Radio Suffolk’s Leslie Dolphin at Lavenham Village Hall.

Author and journalist Liz Trenow will be at Bury St Edmunds Library on March 20 at 7pm, and humourous Suffolk author Charlie Haylock will be at the library on March 22 from 1pm-3pm.
