FRG session at the Festival 2015
This is our annual opportunity to meet some of the writers whose work we have enjoyed, debated and exchanged views on over the year. 2015′s panel: Inaam Kachachi, David Mitchell and Saira Shah kept us engaged with tales of where they found the inspiration for their books, some of the challenges they face as writers and what they are working on next. We’re already planning for 2016, so watch this space!
