Jennings will has agreed to be interviewed for the festival over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

It is part of the “Culture in Quarantine” drive organised by BBC Arts to replace flagship events cancelled during the crisis.

Kit de Waal, author and co-founder of the festival, says: “I’m so excited to reveal these three events coming to The Big Book Weekend during the first Bank Holiday weekend in May.

“Luke Jennings has created an iconic story in Killing Eve, and one that reaches a broad audience and speaks to younger people too. I can’t wait to hear what he has to say about his novellas.”
