Southam Book Festival at the Graham Adams Centre

A Celebration of All Things Book!

Southam’s first ever Book Festival is planned for Sunday Sept 30th 2018 – there will be lots of books to browse or buy, and talks for children and adults throughout the afternoon. Already we are attracting authors, booksellers and publishers from Warwickshire, the Midlands and beyond to take stalls to sell or exhibit at the festival.

There will be something for everyone –  books old and new, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, graphic novels and comics, and children’s books.

The festival will give local readers and would be authors a great opportunity to meet published writers, publishers and booksellers.

There will also be a very short story ‘Flash Fiction’ competition for local writers and there will be a children’s competition too, please follow this link for full details:

As usual at the Graham Adams Centre there will be teas, coffee and wonderful cakes on offer.

We’d love you to attend and help make the Book Festival an event to remember and repeat  …. the first of many!  So, put the date in your diary

Authors, publishers and booksellers can book a place at our Book Festival as soon as possible via the following link

The Graham Adams Centre is a charity run by a local people for the benefit of the Southam community.
