Swindon Festival of Literature Launch 2014

Just a quick re-blog of Festival Chronicles write up of the launch event of the fabulous festival of literature. Why in God’s name this is always in the middle of the day simply defeats me!

I probably won’t be able to get to much of it this year what with battling through final coursework and exams to conclude 3 years of degree study so I look forward to reading about the goings on here.

Festival Chronicle

The Death Cafe. “Everyone welcome but not recommended for anyone recently bereaved.” I’m wondering if I should go to this on Monday 12 May as my cat died a few weeks ago.

She was twenty years old and this was, I’m told, a ‘good innings’. But she was part of our family for nearly half my life so our cat-lessness is making us sad.

But what’s this got to do with the launch of the twenty-first Swindon Festival of Literature, yesterday, noon, at Swindon Central Library?

Funny you should ponder. Sandwiched between Nathan Filer (The Shock of the Fall) and Kate Adie (Needs No Introduction), is the Death Cafe, a discussion about death and dying. You may partake of rich tea but perhaps not sympathy. Bring not your raw nerves; bring instead your pragmatism.
