Don’t forget the inaugural Hursley Park Book Fair takes place this weekend.
Amongst the authors taking part are Richard Hardie and I. Two former interviewees of mine, Anne Wan and Felicity Fair Thompson, will also be at the event.
I’ll also be giving a talk on flash fiction at 10.55 am on the Saturday so if you would like to know more about what this is and some of the joys of reading and writing it, please do come along. Richard is also giving a talk and reading from his Leap of Faith YA novel on the Sunday.
There is a very impressive range of genres represented at the Book Fair so there is bound to be something you like. Maybe you’ll get to discover the works of authors new to you. I hope so. For me, one of the great joys is discovering an author new to me whose works I really take to.
There are refreshments available and parking is free. (I know, how often can you say that these days?). The event itself is also free. (Likewise!).
There will be writing workshops, a Quiz, and book readings as well.
The Saturday covers adult fiction, the Sunday is aimed more at children’s literature, so come to both days and find something to suit every member of the family.
What is so important about reading? I can’t stress enough how wonderful it is to relax with a good book and escape into a story or discover things you hadn’t known through non-fiction. So come along to the Fair and set yourself up with some wonderful reading material for the summer! Go on, you know you want to…
See you there!
