Book festival event with Joanna Cannon

Sorry this event has now been cancelled


To celebrate the publication of Three Things About Elsie, the second book by Derbyshire author Joanna Cannon, pictured above, the Derby Book Festival has invited her to talk about it with Marsha O’Sullivan from BBC local radio at a special pre-festival evening at QUAD in Derby on March 12.

The organisers have also added more exciting names to the list of people taking part in the annual festival. They include Lionel Shriver; Sathnam Sanghera; Margaret Drabble; Alison Weir and Great British Bake Off finalist Ruby Tandoh.

Tickets for events taking place at the Guildhall Theatre and Derby Theatre for the festival in June are now on sale – including evenings with Andy Kershaw, Germaine Greer and MP Ken Clarke.
