Penzance Litfest

Penzance Literary Festival is pleased to announce that its bookselling partner for 2019 will be Waterstones of Truro - and more specifically Andrew Forster and Libby Shaw, who will be running the Litfest bookstall and are, we know, very much looking forward to working with us and with this year’s authors and festival-goers.

We’re delighted that our quest for a new festival bookseller for 2019 has led us to such a friendly and enthusiastic partner, and one which enjoys the distinction of being the only Waterstones branch in Cornwall.

We would like to thank Rachael and James from Edge of the World books who have supported us for so many years, but were unable to offer their services for this year’s Litfest.

Except of course that we realise that human literacy comes in varied shapes and sizes, and do our best to welcome them all.

I could of said the same myself 😂😉

That's clever.
