Books on Tyne Prices vary. Festival runs from 23rd-30th November

The partnership between Newcastle Libraries and the Lit & Phil continues with the ninth year of 'Books on Tyne: The Newcastle Book Festival'. Both venues will stage a remarkably varied programme of events.

From a dramatic celebration of the 300th anniversary of Robinson Crusoe, a consideration of Friedrich Nietzsche and a packed family day (and much more) at the Lit & Phil, to a wide range of events at City Library including renowned Rock journalist and broadcaster David Hepworth; popular science writer Steve Jones; bestselling thriller writer Paula Daly, as well as many of your favourite local authors and personalities. We hope that once again we are offering something for everyone.

Enjoy Books on Tyne 2019!
