Line-up revealed for Monty Lit Fest

Created on 25/05/2021 @ 10:51


Monty Lit Fest has announced its line-up for next month's event.

While the annual event will be online due to the coronavirus situation, organisers have today revealed a packed line-up.

“Although lock down is not being eased quite early enough for a safe in-person festival this year, we still have in store a weekend of literary delights and fun," said festival chair, Sarah Morris.

Brains at the ready on Thursday, June 10, for renowned writer and fiendish quizmaster Marcus Berkmann's Big Pub Quiz Night, celebrating publication of his brand-new Berkmann’s Pop Miscellany.

On Friday, June 11, meet winner of the Welsh Book of the Year, Ifan Morgan Jones, as he discusses his steampunk classic, Babel, with fellow author, Myfanwy Alexander. This session will be in Welsh.

The festival will delve into the past on Saturday, June 12, when it explores why we find fiction based on real or imagined historical events so compelling.

Hope Adams, author of Dangerous Women, Lissa Evans, author of Crooked Heart, Old Baggage, and the upcoming V for Victory, and Alix Nathan, author of The Warlow Experiment and July’s Sea Change will be our guides as we time travel into the world of the historically-based novel. 

Festival Chair, Sarah Morris, said: ‘The literary world has proved to be remarkably resilient – and important – during the pandemic and, as we emerge from lockdown, Monty Lit Fest is delighted to share with you just a taste of what the Festival has in store as we plan for an even bigger and brighter future.

"We appreciate all of the support we’ve received over the last year, and look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible for this year’s online events.’

All 2021 sessions will be held via Zoom, starting at 7.30pm.

"They’re free, but voluntary contributions (via are hugely appreciated and will help ensure a bumper festival in 2022 and beyond."
