Ali Smith’s selection of her favourite three debut novels of the year is one of the festival’s favourite fixtures – and this year is likely to be no exception, as three writers, all of whose books deal with issues of conflict and masculinity, discuss their first forays into fiction with Ali. Come along and meet N Quentin Woolf, (The Death of the Poet), Robert Allison (The Letter Bearer) and Anna Whitwham (Boxer Handsome).

Give the gift of reading this Christmas and bring books and reading for enjoyment to a young person’s life. Book-lovers everywhere appreciate the pleasure and opportunities that reading has brought them. Sadly children across the UK do not have books of their own, nor are they likely to receive any for Christmas this year.
Buy the Gift of Reading from the National Literacy Trust this Christmas for yourself or a loved one and they will send you an exclusive Suzy Goose Christmas card by author and illustrator Petr Horáček.
A gift of £7 means a child could choose a book of their own to keep, which for many will be the first they ever own.
A gift of £20 could fund all three books we give to each child who takes part in our reading project.
A gift of £60 means we could give three children three books each to keep.
