COUNTRY OF THE MONTH
Balham Literary Festival is back!
This month’s theme is the 2019 Balham Literary Festival, taking place 13th-25th June. The focus of this year’s festival is South London–from fictional depictions of the area, to speakers who have strong links to this part of the capital. As well as celebrating the local, there are also events that consider today’s world through broader themes, from philosophy and climate change, to politics and the health care system.
