Dundee Literary Festival
October 24, 2012, 12:00 AM – October 28, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT
When the Dundee Literary Festival started, in 2007, it was almost entirely handmade – the Dundee University team made each one of the 2000 tickets with a colour printer and a guillotine, we put leaflets through doors and sellotaped posters round the town. One of our chairs, a TV presenter, made cups of tea for visitors and we all made some cakes to tempt the authors.
Now, in 2012, the festival is bigger, slicker and altogether more professional, but it hasn’t lost it’s heart. We have a wonderful mix of events from literary fiction, poetry, sports, music, food, workshops, history, adventuring and lots of events for kids. The programme is a triumph,world class authors coming to Dundee to read from new work, let us into the secrets of their success as well as local authors, debut authors and even some killer events.
