June 29 to July 12, 2007
For More Information

Southbank Centre is the home of live literature in London and the UK's foremost venue for spoken word, literature and poetry, hosting readings, debates and events throughout the year. This summer we launch the London Literature Festival, a two-week festival of literature, ideas, creative writing and performance.

From a Guardian Unlimited report:

Nobel laureate Wole Soyinka joins Hari Kunzru, Pat Barker, Blake Morrison, Helen Oyeyemi, Jacqueline Wilson, Lauren Child and a host of other stars for the South Bank Centre's inaugural London literary festival, due to begin on June 29.
"We hope the London literature festival will grow to become a leading festival of national and international standing," [artistic director of South Bank Centre, Jude Kelly] continued, "drawing writers, artists and audiences from around the world."
