November 10, 2019, Queen Mary 2.

"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though."

JD Salinger, Catcher in the Rye

Until now.

We invite you to join the inaugural Queen Mary 2’s Literature Festival at Sea, in association with Cheltenham Literature Festival and The Times and The Sunday Times. This exclusive voyage offers booklovers an opportunity to join some of the best-loved authors and thinkers on both sides of the pond – as well as the smartest journalists – aboard Queen Mary 2 as you sail from New York to Southampton on a Transatlantic Crossing.

Special guests.

We are delighted to reveal our festival lineup, which includes leading historians and cultural commentators, offering a unique and inspiring program of events featuring stimulating conversations, interactive workshops and more.
