Derby Book Festival 2022
This year's programme of around 70 events across nine days celebrates the joy of books and reading for all ages and interests. The seventh Festival has something for everyone and QUAD will be hosting many of this year's events.
There will be in-person events at venues across the city, many of which will be live streamed and recorded and available with the Digital Pass. There is something for everyone with topics ranging from fantasy to foraging, aristocrats to artists, slavery to swimming!
