• Meet and discuss ‘Famous First Words’ with authors Araminta Hall and Lizzie Enfield between 4.30 and 5.15pm. They’ll be discussing the importance of opening paragraphs of novels and how much authors from Dickens and Austen to DBC Pierre, Monica Lewycka and Stephen King pack into their famous first words. Then enter the quiz to test your knowledge and win fantastic book prizes.

• Get top tips on how to pick and read the perfect book for you with ‘How to read a book’ 5.15 to 6pm.
