2011 is the second Stoke Newington Literary Festival, created to celebrate the area's long and influential literary history and to keep the spirit of radical thinking, debating and story-telling alive.This year, we'll be shining the spotlight on some of the people that have helped put Stoke Newington on the cultural map, in particular Edgar Allen Poe and Mary Wollestonecraft.(Such a difficult name to spell!). There's a panel on Mary on Saturday 4 June at 5pm, probably in the library on Stoke Newington Church Street. Anna Birch, of Wollstonecraft Live!, will be one of the speakers. Joe Caluori will be representing Mary on the Green. And A Vindication of the Rights of Mary will be there too.
