MCR artists feature at Big Book Weekend

The Big Book Weekend is a three-day virtual book festival that brings together the best of the cancelled British literary festivals, with a range of events 'presented' by the relevant festival, featuring the authors and other artists that would have appeared. 

It has been co-founded by the authors Kit de Waal and Molly Flatt, is supported by the BBC and Arts Council England, and will take place on the online book festival site MyVLF

Expect interviews, panel discussions, ‘in conversation’ debates, performances and interactive sessions from the biggest names in books, alongside unknown debut authors and rising talents. 


We've picked out three highlights featuring Manchester literature over the weekend:


1. Poet Hafsah Aneela Bashir will be reading from her poetry collection at 1pm on Saturday


2. Joelle Taylor is chairing a discussion on the history of women's rebellion in Britain featuring Comma Press' Resist anthology at 11am on Sunday


3. Poet Jackie Kay is taking part in a discussion on Ann Brontë at 5pm on Sunday
