The Book Fair, the inspired brain-child of author Judith Barrow in 2013, began life in St Mary’s Church House, in Tenby as the first event of the Tenby Arts Festival. It has grown, year by year, ever more successful, with more and more authors eager to participate, so that now we need bigger premises and longer hours and we have found the ideal home in the Queen’s Hall in Narberth, with ample room for book stalls, talks, and workshops.
The fair offers a showcase for independent publishers and authors from Wales and further afield, who will be in attendance, ready to chat, sign and sell their books. All genres are covered.
There will also be pre-booked private “meet the editor” sessions for aspiring authors (see events for full details) and talks and discussions in the spacious first-floor balcony room (access by stairs and by lift).
There will be a children’s corner again, where children’s authors will be happy to talk and read with a younger audience.
Occupying the ground floor of the Queen’s Hall, along with the book fair, is the Sospan Fach cafe for anyone seeking refreshments and our book fair coincides with the Narberth Food Festival, so you are guaranteed not to go hungry.
The fair will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Entry to the fair is FREE, as are the talks. There is a charge for the Meet the Editor sessions, which must be booked in advance.
