Festival of Literature & Liberty: launching this week

The first ever Coventry Festival of Literature is happening next weekend, 4th - 7th May, and has a pre-festival launch event tomorrow night, Tuesday 1st May, at the Tin Angel in Mediaeval Spon Street, Coventry. The Festival's official title is the FESTIVAL OF LITERATURE & LIBERTY; its theme this year is the British abolition of the slave trade.
