Haringey hosts literary festival (UK)

"Book lovers both young and old have a treat in store. Haringey Council's libraries service has organised a literary festival in March, with events for both children and young people as well as for adults. From Iran to Hornsey and Xanadu to Dick Turpin, there'll be something for everyone. Award-winning authors will be talking about their work, there will be tutorials for people interested in writing, dynamic performance poetry sessions and readings from books. Film adaptations of books will also be shown during the festival, as well as music events and a book group event for blind and partially sighted people. It's the second year that a literary festival has been held in the borough. Cllr Dhiren Basu, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Lifelong Learning, said: 'This festival is a great way to encourage more people of all ages to read more and to raise interest in literature'"
