London Lit Plus

By now, several of you might have heard about the London Literature Festival, which is happening in the newly regenerated Southbank Centre. This is the south bank of the Thames, covering an area that is bookended (see what I did there?) by the Hungerford and Waterloo Bridges.

You may not know about London Lit Plus however, an effort by several avant garde literary bods to get London to wake up to just how much out there isn't part of the Nobel laureates and dignitaries that will grace the Festival. The rules are that it has to be taking place within the London Orbital, and it has to be happening around the same dates of the London Literature Festival.
