This extraordinary Transatlantic Crossing is curated by the programming team from The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, bringing the spirit of the Festival to your voyage.
The Literature Festival at Sea offers book lovers an incredible opportunity to join some of the best-loved authors, historians, poets, and critics, as well as journalists fom The Times and The Sunday Times. Confirmed speakers so far include Bernardine Evaristo, Lynda La Plante and Jamie Susskind.
Throughout the week we celebrate the written word in all its variety with workshops, discussions and Q&As, taking in literature, art, film, history and politics, all underpinned by the quality of delivery that is Cheltenham’s hallmark. There will be opportunities to hear literary greats in conversation and meet favourite authors at intimate book signings.
With unmissable special guests and bookish delights around every corner, this promises to be an incredible journey.
