Margate Bookie 2022
The Margate Bookie festival is back at Turner Contemporary for 2022 with some big-name writers Maggie Gee, Dr Radha Modgil, Daisy Buchanan, Lauren Bravo, Rosie Wilby, Jude Cook and Felicity Hayward.
The Margate Bookie festival is back at Turner Contemporary over the Jubilee weekend of 2-5 June 2022.
Bringing a seaside flavour is Costa Book of the Year 2021 winner Monique Roffey and her novel The Mermaid of Black Conch. Other events include the launch of the IsleWrite’s anthology, Pete the Temp’s show From Homer to Hip Hop, and five debut novelists from Vanguard/Faber Academy.
Local debut novelist Chloe Timms is in conversation with Susannah Wise. Samantha Ellis and Emily Midorikawa Uncover Past Lives, and Zoe Gilbert and Elise Valmorbida are running creative writing workshops. The event finishes with a special live reading of TS Eliot’s The Waste Land.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of ‘The Waste Land’, there will be a live reading of the entire poem by award-winning Faber & Faber poets.
Margate Bookie Director and Founder Andreas Loizou says:
We’re delighted to return to Turner Contemporary with an exceptional lineup of writers, authors and performers. Our team has been outstanding over the last year, and we’ve had so much support from local people. It’s going to be fun!
