A literary fair is set to be held on Tyneside for the first time.
Combining a book fair, author and poetry readings, writing workshops and local theatre performances, the North Tyneside Literary Festival will take place in Whitley Bay on October 17th.
Some 15 northern publishers will attend, bringing their best-selling authors to sign copies of their latest books.
Local writers, including Kitty Fitzgerald and Carol Clewlow, will also be on hand to read from their most recent work.
The free festival takes place on Saturday October 17th at St. Paul's Church, Whitley Bay, from 10a.m until 5.30p.m.
