Around the World in Stories

This year’s Hungerford Literary Festival 13th-15th October, is inspired by the theme of Journeys. Festival curator Emma Milne White says, ‘At a time when our world seems in such a state of flux it seemed an appropriate choice and books are a great way to help us understand the world in which we live.”

Helping us understand one of the great issues of our

time, Sunday Times writer Jonathan Dean traces his remarkable family history in I Must Belong Somewhere, drawing parallels between the thirties and present-day refugee crisis. For full event listings, click here.
