Writing on the Wall

Described as "a tad more punk than Hay on Wye" on the FACT website, Writing on the Wall is a Liverpool literary festival running until April 23rd. Established in 2000, it's a celebration of all aspects of the spoken and written word and includes readings, workshops and discussion panels. Guests this year include Levi Tafari, a contributor to Liverpool's Eighthundredlives project and Jonathan Kaplan, a front-line war surgeon. It's all good stuff. Tonight, for example, in 'Ol Blue Eyes was a Red, author Martin Smith talks about his new book about the other side of Frank Sinatra, the committed anti-racist and civil rights supporter. It's at the Everyman Bistro at 8pm. Full details of all the events, including times and venues, can be found on the Writing on the Wall website. According to Irvine Welsh: "There isn't another writing festival in England as good as Writing on the Wall."
