Join us for a Festival edition of Page Against the Machine, in partnership with The Book Hive! Pick a book, grab a cool drink and turn off your phone for a well-deserved detox read in the beautiful surroundings of The Plantation Garden – or join in from home from the dining room window, tucked up in bed or in a deck chair in the garden!
This event is part of the City of Literature programme, in partnership with National Centre for Writing.
