0 Excitement builds for Monty Lit Fest

Eaves & Lord bookshop in Montgomery is preparing for Montgomeryshire Literary Festival’s arrival in the town with a stunning display of books by authors who will be speaking at the Festival.

Barry Lord, one of the owners of Eaves & Lord, said, “Excitement is already building for the Festival and it will be a wonderful event for the town of Montgomery.” The bookshop is one of the proud supporters of the Lit Fest, which takes place here in Montgomery from 12th to 14th June. Whilst summer seems a long way off, now is a great time to purchase some of the visiting writers’ books and decide which events you want to attend.

Tickets for festival events will go on sale in early April at Eaves & Lord and online at www.montylitfest.com, where the full 2020 line up and other information is also available.

To involve the local community in the Festival, Monty Lit Fest Committee is running a competition for children, under the age of 12, to design a bookmark illustrating their love of books. Imaginative designs have already been received and the deadline for entries has been extended to March 18.

Many local businesses have also shown their support and there are a few sponsorship and advertising opportunities still available, with a deadline of March 16 for submissions. To find out more please contact chair@montylitfest.com.
