The Yeovil Community Arts Association is delighted to have Jason Goodwin as our speaker at the opening event of the fourth Yeovil Literary Festival.
The evening of October 20th, starting at 7pm in the Manor Hotel, will be the grand opening of the festival with the YCAA Literary Dinner with Jason Goodwin. Acclaimed novelist Jason Goodwin is the author of several award winning travel books, and his series of crime novels with a eunuch called Yashim as his investigator are set in the times of the Ottoman Empire. This year we are awaiting a cookery book full of Yashim’s recipes as featured in this fascinating series. Jason has a large following of readers so come along and hear for yourself whilst enjoying a champagne reception followed by a three course meal with coffee and mints. Jason was also our judge for the novel category of the Yeovil Literary Prize this year.
A stunning beginning to our Literary Festival. Tickets are now available at £25 each from The Octagon Theatre box office 01935 422884. See www.octagon-theatre.co.uk.
