The intellectual heavyweights are joined by a tribe of other writers in a lit fest running at the Brighton Dome.

After an afternoon of talks and readings Bonnie Greer will be reading from her new book Obama Music.

On Sunday there’s another New Voices session. Later in the day Polly Tonybee is hosting Love, Loss and Tragedy across Continents and to finish it off there’s a ‘meet the author’ session with Ali Smith.

There’s a lot more on than I have time for here, for more information, bookworms and lit lovers look here.
