Dundee Literary Festival adopts winter date

5th October 2010

The Dundee Literary Festival is to be moved from a summer date to winter, meaning book lovers will be able to enjoy the event for a second time this year, the University of Dundee has revealed.

Anna Day, director of the festival, explained that a second event will be held on October 27th and 28th, to avoid audiences having to wait 18 months between 2010's summer gathering and a meeting at the end of 2011.

'There will be literary events throughout the year as usual, but the main festival will now take place in winter, giving it a very different feel,' she commented.

Alan Warner will be in attendance at the winter festival to discuss his Booker longlisted novel The Stars in the Bright Sky, while Brian Johnstone will read from Poem and A Piece, his latest collection.

James Robertson, Norman Watson and biographer Alan Davies have also been confirmed for the event.

The first Dundee Literary Festival of 2010 opened its doors on June 23rd and saw Costa Prize-winning poet Christopher Reid, Life Of Pi author Yann Martel and biographer John Carey attend.
