Whitstable Literary Festival

Last weekend I attended the Whitstable Literary Festival where I had the good fortune to be interviewed by Guardian Journalist, Ros Coward, met an enthusiastic audience, sold out of books and learnt that literary festivals are rather like rock tours. A place to try out ideas on an audience and see what grabs them.

Thanks to Whitlit for having me. Ros for all her help, MLP for photos and the lovely audience for supporting me and buying my book.

  1. Well done Carol, not bad for an Essex girl from Elm Park, you should be very proud.
    I am really enjoying the book, a slow reader as I am working long hours surveying birds and trying to save nests from foxes and tractors, down on mini-marshes of Pagham Harbour and Medmerry reserves in Sussex. I love the way you have intertwined your personal story into the life and lives on the marshes, skilfully done, some beautiful turns of frase too.
    Rebecca red your book in 3 days, she loved it and we both view the world and the way things are similarly to yourself and can identify closely with your feelings throughout. I wonder if many others question the way life is and the way it is lived by most, a treadmill of work, expense, time lost, time passing so quickly and before you know it……………

    • Thanks Barry. So glad you and Becky enjoyed it. I think there are more people out there questioning the dominant values than we know. I think more and more people have that niggle that this isn’t the way it should be. I think we can all take hope in that. Sympathise about the long hours spent on bird surveys by the way. I have the same problem.
