Manchester Book Fair...

The time has come for another Manchester Book Market... it's a THREE DAY event in St Ann's Square Manchester, where you can browse book and zine stalls, listen to a variety of Manchester writers read all kinds of wonderful creative stuff, drink coffee, loll about, meet publishers, discover new writers, support grass-roots writing, buy a Manchester libraries bookbag (as above)...

Brilliant readings include from writers... Joe Stretch, Tony Walsh, Julian Daniel, Mike Garry, Akiel Chinelo, Elizabeth Baines, Louise Wallwein, Conrad Williams, Ailsa Cox, Zoe Lambert, Eleanor Rees, Mike Duff, Tim Lees, Annie Clarkson (YES, ME), Segun Le French, Tom Fletcher, Lula Blue and many, many more

Sounds like a perfect way to spend an afternoon to me.

It's on Friday 17th - Sunday 19th and you can read more about it on Literature North West or The Manchester Lit List (where I pinched the gorgeous book bag photo...it's on my shopping list!)
