23 April – 19 May 2013
Various Locations

Celebrating all things connected with the written and spoken word, Liverpool is the place to be this April and May as the city plays host to In Other Words. From famous author readings, book swaps, special storytelling events, debates, poetry competitions and performances in unique venues this will be literary festival like no other.

At the heart of this month long festival will be Liverpool’s Central Library, which once again opens its doors following intricate restoration. With historic treasures, state of-the-art facilities and a new café to relax in there is something for everyone.

On top of all of this and coinciding with Central Library’s re-opening is this year’s Light Night, the city’s one-night arts and culture festival which sees venues across Liverpool open from 4pm to late so visitors can make the most of the gems on their doorsteps.

With a wealth of things to see and do expect the unexpected.
