The fourth Guernsey Literary Festival has now come to a triumphant end and what a resounding success it was!
Our aim as ever was to offer a varied and energetic celebration of literature with something for everyone – from aspiring writers to families looking for a fun day out – and we think we achieved this. From welcoming some of the most notable visiting authors the island has ever seen to showcasing the outstanding talent we have on our own shores, this year’s event was unquestionably our best yet. The town centre was simply abuzz throughout with readers and writers alike.
A huge thanks goes out to everyone involved: our sponsors, partners and patrons who provided the funds and infrastructure to make this possible; the authors, poets, speakers, actors, performers, troubadours and artists who lent their awe-inspiring talents to our eclectic line-up; the volunteers who donated their time and unfaltering energy; and, of course, the passionate public who attended and engaged with the events so well.
We are all really looking forward to seeing you again when we return in spring 2017. You can stay updated by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter.
