The Ryedale Book Festival have a couple of events coming up in Malton in a couple of weeks.

In one of our biggest events yet, 200 children from three Ryedale Primary Schools will be taking part in a three day poetry and literacy event, sponsored by Clore Duffield. The children will be working alongside novelist, journalist and former war correspondent, Justin Huggler and contemporary war poet, Corporal Danny Martin.

As the grand finale to the three day schools event, 100 Years of War Poetry will be held at Malton Secondary School on Middlecave Road at on Wednesday July 9th 6:30pm, featuring contemporary war poet, Corporal Danny Martin and the 200 young poets from Ryedale Primary Schools.
This is a FREE event. There will be a collection for Help the Heroes.

In addition to this, Justin Huggler will be talking about his latest novel, Burden of the Desert, set in occupied Iraq and inspired by his own experiences there. The novel has been described as:
“Tense, affecting and informative, this is an old-school thriller…vivid and utterly convincing”. The Guardian
“Relentlessly gripping”. Independent on Sunday
“This tense, thought-provoking and extraordinary book is an absolute must” Daily Mail.

This event will also be happening at Malton School on Monday July 7th. Tickets cost £3 on the door.
