The festival celebrates a Queer perspective of the written and spoken word on Saturday 11th October 2014.
WHAT'S NEW IN 2014
This year, for the first time, we're exploring lesbian and gay Erotica & Erotic Romance with author Lucy Felthouse. Rosie Garland brings Poetry and Fiction to our festival, and Neil Bartlett will be providing the Drama - with monologues from his book Queer Voices, as well as treating us to some of his most recently published work - The Disappearance Boy.
Additionally, this year we will be celebrating National Coming Out Day with Northampton Borough Council's LGBT Forum.
So, if you come to booQfest in 2014 you will find so much more going on than in previous years! There will still be fascinating author talks and readings, and book signings but on top of that as part of National Coming Out Day local LGBT organisations will be promoting their services, providing entertainment, workshops and Northampton Borough Council's LGBT Forum will launch the Inspirational LGBT Award.
All completely FREE to attend!
