Northern Publishers’ Fair

Thirteen cracking northern publishers serving up bookish goodness at the Northern Publishers’ Fair! As this is close to Christmas, there will be some Christmassy tales performed by northern authors, starting at 11.40am. Though we are operating a staggered entrance, you can of course stay as long as you like! We will have copies of the Northern Focus Bookseller magazine to hand out to lucky readers! The first 150 visitors will receive a free book from Fly on the Wall Press. Come see what these innovative Northern Publishers have to offer and celebrate the North after, what we will all agree, has been a hard year for independent publishing! Ask our lovely publishers for their recommendations.
