This year’s Henley Literary Festival takes place from Saturday 28th September to Sunday 6th October 2019.
As a Friend of the Festival (find out how you can become one here), I’ve been excitedly browsing my preview copy of the programme since it dropped through my letterbox yesterday. I’ve already spotted several events I really want to attend. More of those once I’ve secured the tickets! Tickets go on sale to Friends of the Festival on Tuesday 16th July and to the general public on Monday 22nd July 2019.
Since I won’t be able to attend everything I might like to (because of little things like time and money), I’ve been inspired to create a reading list of books I own but haven’t yet read by some of the authors appearing at Festival events. I’ll try to read these between now and the start of the Festival and publish my (spoiler free) reviews during the Festival.

Between now and the start of the Festival, I also plan to share reviews of books I’ve already read by authors appearing at the Festival.
Please note: I have no commercial relationship with Henley Literary Festival – unless you count spending my money on tickets for events! I’m just a book lover and book blogger keen to support my local literary festival.
