THIS year’s Marlborough LitFest Big Town Read choice is Platform Seven, the latest novel by author Louise Doughty.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s LitFest will be taking place online on September 26 and the audience will be able to put questions to Louise.

Genevieve Clarke, Chair of Marlborough LitFest said: “This will be a first for us – a virtual Big Town Read which we’re offering free so that our audience in Marlborough and far beyond can join in.

"We hope that as many people as possible read and talk about Platform Seven in advance so that they’re ready with their questions for the author.”
