The Margate Bookie Winter Special

The Margate Bookie is back!

Join us for author talks, children's events, creative workshops and literary fun. Once again we're bringing big names and the best local talent to Turner Contemporary and iconic venues around town. Come and enjoy our poetry slam, drama and wonderful popup bookshop.

Headliners include Richard Skinner (Faber & Faber), Lesley Kara (The Rumour) and Sebastian Baczkiewicz who writes the BBC Radio 4 fantasy drama Pilgrim. Bookie favourites Elise Valmorbida (Madonna of the Mountains) and Vanessa King (Ten Keys to Happier Living) will show visitors how to be more creative.  Tom Jackson will talk about Postcards from the Past, Scott Pack will run a Guardian Masterclass on Getting Published and Kerry Hudson (Lowborn) will perform in a chippie!
