The fourth ArchWay With Words book festival will be taking place from 13th-22nd October. With more than 40 events featuring spellbinding specialists in fact and fiction, it is an event not to be missed. Many events are free and others will have low cost ticket prices thanks to local sponsorship from Islington Council, Bode Hill House and Essential Living. Tickets are available online at www.archwaywithwords.com or from Archway Library, or Archway Market.
A book festival that is more than just books, the 10 day programme kicks off with the screening of short films (video-poems), followed later by four hours of David Bowie's music accompanied by rare footage. Other events showcase new fiction, explore the genres of murder and mystery, and science, amongst many other fascinating topics. Add to that a singalong choir session, a comedy showcase and traditional irish music and there really is something for everyone.
