LITFEST has announced the line-up for the 34th Lancaster Literature Festival, with headline guest Jon Ronson.

The annual festival, which runs from October 14 to 23, also features Carol Birch - a Lancaster author shortlisted for this year’s Booker prize - novelist Sarah Hall, children’s writers Melvin Burgess and Celia Rees, and storytellers Hugh Lupton and Nick Hennessey.

Litfest11 starts with an evening with Jon Ronson, the writer, documentary film maker and Guardian columnist, who takes us into a world of madness with his new book, The Psychopath Test.

Litfest was hit by arts funding cuts earlier this year but the festival has survived, although it will be smaller than in previous years.
