About the Festival

The Stay-at-Home! Festival is a celebration of books and writing, preventing loneliness and championing connectivity and community amidst social distancing. With an emphasis on both inclusivity and accessibility, this is a festival for those who might not feel able or comfortable to attend a physical literary event. This year our programme theme is: The Power (and Danger) of Storytelling. It focuses on representation and diversity, drawing from The Danger of a Single Story by novelist Chimamanda Adichie.
