Programming 2013:
  • At this year’s festival, books about travel, cooking and craft rub shoulders with memoir, music and the very best literature from across the world. This year’s Belfast Book Festival will once again deliver the wide world of books to the city, creating ideas and bringing the joy that only the printed word can offer.
    • Featured are international stars such from the travel writer Paul Theroux, to John Boyne, author of the internationally acclaimed Boy in the Striped Pyjamas; world renowned food critic Jay Rayner and the Scottish National Poet, Liz Lochead. Added to these well known names, we’ll hear about new books on the fracking controversy, a personal account of IVF treatment, the life of Northern Ireland’s most famous actor, and an alternative history of Ireland by one of its most famous artists.
