Coming in September 2024

ReadFest aims to deliver a wide-ranging selection of local, national and internationally acclaimed writers especially selected to entertain and inform. Held in Barking and Dagenham Libraries each September and produced by Pen to Print, we have been celebrating readers, writers and books at ReadFest since 2011.  2024 will be our thirteenth festival!
