Southbank Centre , South Bank Until Monday October 12 2015

The London Literature Festival once again fills the Southbank Centre with acclaimed authors, poets, speakers and collaborators for a fortnight of wordy events. Celebrating its ninth year in 2015, the festival will include a four day live reading of 'Moby Dick' (Oct 1-4) with unique commissions and surprises to complement the performance (and some reading slots open to the public). 

Other events to look out for include an evening of music and conversation with Sir Tom Jones who celebrates the launch of his first autobiography (Oct 11); the world premiere of 'The Hollow of the Hand', a collaborative book by PJ Harvey and Seamus Murphy (Oct 9-10); Terry Gilliam discussing his life, career and creativity (Oct 7); the Young Adult Weekender, which is packed with events for 13-25s (Oct 2-3), and a special celebrity edition of Literary Death Match (Oct 6).
