You Missed a Great Event! You Missed a Great Event!

Some of the great feedback from the ABC of Love event. ‘Very Enjoyable’, ‘ Lots of fun decorating my cupcake’, ‘Both authors were very Interesting’, ‘The sparkling wine was a nice treat’, ‘Can’t wait to try the cupcake (that I decorated myself) when I get home’, ‘Kate (Walker) opened my eyes to Mills & Boon’. 

Here's some feedback from our Guy Mankowski Author Event - "One of the most interesting author talks I have been to. Very inciteful."

This year the Doncaster Literary Festival, “Turn the Page” has been organised in a different way. We will not be just having a weekend to celebrate all things Literary; we will be celebrating throughout the year. We will be working in partnership with different organisations and authors to bring you a varied programme throughout the year.
 

Here are the events that are coming up on the programme:
