The fair for word lovers is back! The snow and ice of the 2018 Festival did not deter budding writers from meeting at our inaugural Word Cafe last year, so much so that we are running it again!
This is an opportunity to meet members of local groups including Lichfield Writers, Lichfield Poets and the Birthplace Book Club and Writing Group, discuss your own writing experiences, share tips, solve writers’ block issues and learn something new.
This year you can discover the traditional art of bookbinding with local craftsman Roy Fell, and enjoy a pop-up exhibition of rare books and letter from the Johnson Birthplace Museum collection.
Refreshments will be available, with all proceeds supporting local charities, so why not spend an hour or two curled up with the idea of some new good books!
