Gravity is a new festival taking place online and in person from 5 – 7 November, and hosted by The Reader.

Taking its theme from writer, Jeanette Winterson, who wrote: ‘Inside books there is perfect space and it is that space which allows the reader to deal with the normal problems of gravity’, the hybrid literature and wellbeing festival aims to create a place where the serious problems of life can be spoken about, cried over and laughed at.

A weekend of headline talks, panel discussions, Shared Reading groups and wellbeing workshops will address the inevitable toughness that life in the Covid-era throws at us through literature, laughter, art and beyond.

The programme is part online and part in person, with physical events taking place at the Mansion House in Liverpool’s Calderstones Park.
