Bobbing along on the beautiful Birmingham Sea
Birmingham Book Festival becomes Birmingham Literature Festival this year. Rebrand aside, you can still expect the usual excellent programme. There are 40 events over 10 days at great venues, including Ikon, the cathedral and the new Birmingham library.

The Literature Festival is crammed full of events over the next few days, but a lot of them are costly. One of the free events includes The Sea in Birmingham presented by Tindal Street Fiction Group, which is an anthology of stories celebrating thirty years of the influential Tindal Street Fiction Group. Tindal Street are the local publishers who have been supporting Midlands writers and would-be lauretes for the past twenty four years.

The anthology 'offers a portrait of the region in extraordinary times'. From the city centre, to as far as Leamington Spa, Conventry, and closer to home areas like the Jewellery Quarter, it is a celebration of the Midlands based publishers and the authors they've worked with.

From 6.00pm - 7.00pm the editors will talk about the book and some of the writers will read excerpts from their stories, as well as David Edgar who will say a few words. There will be an opportunity to meet the writers and buy signed copies of the book.

For an hour on Sunday there doesn't seem to be a more quaint way of spending an hour of your evening, rounding off a week long literature festival, with a signed copy of your book, clutched close to your chest.
