In March 2021 we launched The LoveReading LitFest, the manifestation of a vision we’ve had for a while to create LoveReading TV. The LitFest enables us to deliver an extra level of recommendation to our existing offering and enable our audience to discover new authors and literature in an entirely different way.

You can view and find out more information from the launch video, and you can follow LoveReading LitFest on all social media channels and take a look at the LitFest section of the website.
