Sonya Whitefield, Arts Development Officer, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, commented;

"The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is hugely proud to support the Belfast Book Festival.  Despite the significant hurdles in programming a festival during a pandemic, the Belfast Book Festival has risen to the challenge and has gathered together the most wonderful collection of writers, poets, personalities and thinkers, for audiences to enjoy safely from home.  With something on offer to suit all tastes and ages, I would encourage everyone to join in online and celebrate the immense joy of books this June"
