Book to the Future was the University of Birmingham’s first festival of the written and spoken word. We were delighted to be able to bring you a packed programme of workshops, lectures, readings and question and answer sessions featuring our own academic, student and alumni talent as well as an exciting range of well known authors, poets, playwrights and storytellers.
Running from Thursday 24 October to Tuesday 29 October 2013, the festival featured a range of topics from poetry to publishing, comic books to crime, science fiction to Charles Dickens and even the Battle of Bosworth to the Book of the Dead.
Thanks to sponsorship from the Alumni Impact Fund and the University’s College of Arts and Law, we were able to bring most of this fantastic programme of events to you free of charge.
Coming soon - Book to the Future 2014 (14-18 October)
The full programme of events for Book to the Future 2014 (14-18 October) will be announced here shortly.
