I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to speak at the Literary Festival. I enjoyed the Festival immensely. Your organisation was absolutely flawless and the talks that I attended were fascinating! The audience at my talk was so engaged and interested, this was really nice to see! I can only congratulate you for putting together such an impressive programme! I would also like to thank you wholeheartedly for all the support that you offered myself and my entire family - from picking me up at the airport to organising our accommodation. We have fallen in love with Guernsey and we are already planning our next trip! Three days are simply not enough to explore this wonderful gem in the Channel!
