Hastings Literary Festival

Sam Davey could have come out of the womb with a book in her hand.  From there it was hardly a stretch to bcoming a writer herself and then to co-founding the first Hastings Literary Festival. When HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths talked to her about this new addition to the Hastings annual calendar of festivals and events, she explains: “I was raised on books. I could read before I could walk”.
