Cheltenham Literature Festival confirms author appearances

7th July 2010

The first batch of authors who will appear at this year's The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival has been revealed.

In the event's Director's Picks publication, it was confirmed that Salman Rushdie, Jostein Gaarder, Bernhard Schlink and A.S. Byatt will be attending the festival.

It was also announced that bestselling authors Jacqueline Wilson, Judith Kerr and Jeremy Strong will be present at the children's festival, which has more than 80 events aimed at young readers.

Running from October 8th to the 15th, the Cheltenham Literature Festival 2010 will be themed around dreams and nightmares. Its complete line-up will be unveiled in August.

'This year's theme of dreams and nightmares ranges from Blake and Coleridge to Frankenstein and Dracula, exploring the literary power of the unconscious and people's fascination with the supernatural,' the festival's artistic director, Sarah Symth, wrote in the publication.

Last year, more than 115,000 tickets were sold for the festival, which was attended by over 650 authors including Sebastian Faulks, Stephen Fry and Tony Parsons.
