South Woodham Focus Essex Book Festival 2018 Author Joy Rhoades to appear at 13 Book worms, culture vultures and people who like a laugh are in for a treat as the Essex Book Festival descends on the county’s libraries next month. Established by Essex County Council in 1999, the Essex Book Festival has gone from strength to strength and is now run by a charitable trust kindly based within the Centre for Creative Writing at the University of Essex in Colchester, one of the festival's key partners. This year’s month-long festival throughout March will be launched by Essex’s own singer, songwriter and activist Billy Bragg, with more than 100 events for people of all ages descending on libraries, theatres, hotels and lecture halls. The box office is open so book early to avoid disappointment as some events will sell out quickly, such as the Bard of Essex’s opening event at Anglia Ruskin University on 28 February. South Woodham Ferrers Library The Essex Book Festival will be coming to South Woodham Ferrers in March. The Library will play host to author Joy Rhoades as part of the Festival on Wednesday 21st March at 7.30pm. She will be talking about her latest book The Woolgrower’s Companion, and answering questions about her work. The Woolgrower’s Companion is a war story and a love story set against the dusty heat and high stakes of the Australian outback. It is a passionate tribute to Australia’s landscape and its people, inspired by the author’s grandmother, a fifth-generation grazier and the family’s keeper of stories. Tickets are on sale £7 each (£5 for 27yrs & under) and are There are 21 events at 18 libraries, ranging from talks by Sally Magnusson, bestselling author and broadcaster, and Jane Harris, award-winning author of Sugar Money set in 18th century Caribbean, to popular crime author ;88;+
