Wimbledon BookFest : Sunrise
June 9 @ 5:00 pm - June 15 @ 9:30 pm
Following the success of the two-event format in 2021, Wimbledon BookFest fans can look forward to more of the same this year. The first in-person Summer event, Sunrise, promises another exciting programme of events featuring a range of writers, artists and thinkers – from well-known names to important new voices and local talent.
This summer’s line-up has a very topical focus and includes a range of speakers covering UK and global affairs, as well as taking a closer look at our relationship with climate change. There are top literary prize winners — Women’s Prize Winner Susanna Clarke (Piranesi), former Booker winner Julian Barnes and 2021 Nobel Literary Prize Winner Abdulrazak Gurnah. Other speaker highlights include Tim Marshall, Oliver Bullough, Julia Samuel, Tina Brown, Antiques Roadshow presenter Ronnie Archer-Morgan and stand-up comedy with Andy Hamilton.
