Petworth is just the type of cobbled medieval English town, thick with antique shops and cozy cafes, that you’d expect to host a literary festival. Now in its 11th year, the 2021 Petworth Festival Literary Week invites guests to attend talks in person or stream the festival online. Hosted in partnership with the town’s local and independently owned Petworth Bookshop, the programmers consistently bring together top writers to discuss timely subjects. For this next iteration, participating authors announced so far include William Boyd, Anthony Horowitz, and Joanna Trollope. The guest star? Isata Kanneh-Mason. —B.A.
