Place and travel at Faversham festival

This month’s Faversham Literary Festival, in Kent (February 21-24), will have contributions from writers touching on place and travel. Among them are Tim Dee, author most recently of Landfill; Iain Sinclair, who in Living With Buildings explores the relationship between our health and the built environment; Hugh Warwick, whose Linescapes offers a “hedgehog’s-eye view of the country’s ditches, dykes and railways”; Horatio Clare, who has recently recreated on radio and in print (Something of His Art) a walk taken by JS Bach across northern Germany in 1705; Melissa Harrison, whose acclaimed novel, Among the Barley, is set in a Suffolk farming community between the wars; and Nasrin Parvaz and Lucy Popescu, discussing the experiences of refugees and migrants.
