BOOKWORMS will be turning pages in Stratford next month.
The Stratford Upon Avon Book Fair will be returning to the Levi Fox Hall on Chapel Lane, on Saturday August 21.
It will be one of the first live book fairs in the country organised by the PBFA (Provincial Booksellers’ Fairs Association) to return after lockdown.
Fair organiser Georgia Mullen said: “It’s been a long time since we were allowed to browse a live book fair, and whilst there have been many online or virtual fairs over the past 18 months, they are just not quite the same. We are so excited to finally return to Stratford.”
Rare, second hand and antiquarian books will be available to purchase on all manner of topics, including local history, travel, cookery, maps and ephemera, modern firsts, art, theology, children’s books and more.
And Banbury author Emily Lloyd-Gale will be signing her debut children’s book Mighty Maurice. It’s a story about dealing with issues such as fitting in, self-esteem and bullying, told through the adventures of Mighty Maurice, the moose.
The fair runs from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free. Visit www.pbfa.org/fairs/stratford-upon-avon-3-1-1-1for further information.
