Autumn is the perfect season to hunker down with a good book and if you need inspiration for your reading list, there’s no better place to be than the Southbank Centre. Now in its 16th year, London Literature Festival brings international authors, poets and speakers together for a gathering of word nerds and book-lovers over 11 days at the riverside venue.

This year’s line up of talks, readings, workshops and poetry includes Jacquline Wilson, George the Poet, Sir Patrick Stewart, Kerry Washington, Yu Miri, Jada Pinkett-Smith Teju Cole and more.
