Virus leads to postponement of Jewish Literary Festival

The organisers of the Jewish Literary Festival, due to take place in Hatfield Street on Sunday, have postponed the event in the light of Covid-19.

Spokeswoman Beryl Eichenberger said they did not yet have a new date, but the festival would place at some stage. People who had bought tickets should hold on to them as they would remain valid.

“We have decided to be proactive and postpone the festival. This regrettable but responsible action is to limit transmission of COVID-19.

Our team has been working for the past 18 months and so we are  deeply disappointed at having to make this call but our responsibility is to act in the best interests of our literature-loving community.”

    Devastating! I was scheduled to take part in two sessions, introducing my debut novel, The Trouble With My Aunt. I feel bereft and deflated, as I imagine does everyone else involved in what is a mammoth undertaking. That said, it is the responsible thing to do, and I have every faith in the organisers. Hopefully, we will all be able to convene without panic sometime in the future.
