I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).
I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.
I very much enjoyed the whole occasion, and want to thank you for all your hospitality.
I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.
