My Henley Literary Festival 2020 Reading List

This year’s Henley Literary Festival takes place from Saturday 26th September to Sunday 4th October 2020. Owing to circumstances we’re all aware of, this year’s Festival has had to move online but there is still a great line-up of authors on the programme.

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. I’ve already purchased tickets for several events I want to attend…sorry, join online.

As in previous years, I’ve put together a reading list of books I own but haven’t yet read by some of the authors taking part in this year’s Festival.  I’ll try to read these between now and the start of the Festival and publish my (spoiler free) reviews during 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.

    1. Thanks. I’m going to miss being there as they have such lovely venues for events, including on a Thames river boat. Plus chatting to other book lovers and authors. Oh well, maybe next year..
