The Sunday Times is reporting that Sir Paul has accepted an invitation to appear at their 14th annual Hay Festival of Literature, one of the UK's leading national cultural events. Regarded as the world's greatest literary festival, the event offers an opportunity for readers to hear, question, and be entertained by novelists, poets, playwrights and scientists of international repute. Sir Paul will be appearing with his fellow Liverpudlian poet and editor, Adrian Mitchell.
The festival will run for 10 days, from May 25 to June 3, in Hay-on-Wye, Herefordshire, Wales. Although it previously took place in the town's cattle market, this year it is being moved to "a prettier setting" - a marquee on the lawn in front of the medieval castle. The events will be webcast and transcribed so as to be accessible to readers and scholars worldwide.
