The 14/4

 The 14/4 Literary Dinner brings 14 authors, 4 speakers, book lovers, writers, and assorted revellers of fine culture together for one great 4 course dinner.


The 14/4 Literary Dinner 2012 was held on the 16th March 2012

As part of The Windsor Festival Spring Weekend

There are 14 authors and a 4 course meal

At 14 tables, with a seat at each for an author.

Every table has an author to host.

But, not just one author – oh no!

Between courses the authors change tables. Therefore all 14 tables host 4 different authors throughout dinner.

The fun doesn’t stop there.

Between courses – to cover the clatter of cutlery clearing – an author speaks. A different author each time. And they all promise to be interesting and/or entertaining.

And still the fun continues.

At the end of the evening, the authors are around to talk to, their books are available to buy, you can have them sign these. This is also a chance to speak to those authors you did not get a chance to host. Oh, and each other about the authors, their books, the dinner and your facebook and twitter updates quite possibly.

“When is this?” we hear you cry…
