WESTON'S Grand Pier is set to host the finale of this year's Lit Fest with a special appearance by bestselling author Raynor Winn.

The event, which started today (Thursday, October 5) will end on Sunday, October 8.

Raynor is best known for her books The Salt Path, The Wild Silence and Landlines.

This year's Lit Fest, which is presented by Super Culture and co-produced with Weston-super-Mare Town Council and The Write Box, will centre on the theme Words on the Edge: Bookish adventures across land, sea and identity.

Fiona Matthews, creative director at Super Culture, said: "Raynor Winn's books resonate with the spirit of the British coast, making The Grand Pier the ideal backdrop for her discussion on her latest best-seller, Landlines."

Landlines details the story of a 1000-mile walking journey from Scotland to Cornwall.

Cllr Catherine Gibbons from Weston-super-Mare Town Council added: "Our coastal landscape perfectly complements the Lit Fest's celebration of local culture and literature. With activities suitable for all ages, this event promises to be a page-turner."

Raynor will be interviewed by Dr. Lesel Dawson, associate professor in Literature and Culture at the University of Bristol.
