A HOST of celebrated literary intellectuals are gearing up for the second edition of Gibraltar’s International Literary Festival.

Kate Mosse, acclaimed novelist and writer of 2005 bestseller Labyrinth, is the stand-out name on the list of speakers which reads like a who’s who of literary bodies.

Historian and television presenter Kate Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey, and past editor of the Observer Jonathon Fenby, will also be in attendance.

A number of other novelists and journalists are set to appear at the two-day event on November 13 and 14 as well as an orchestral band.
