Love Your Local Authors!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who came to our Love Your Local Authors Book Fair in Bury St Edmunds yesterday! It was a fantastic event, and a brilliant opportunity to bring local authors together with local readers.

We’ll be running more book fairs later this year. If you’d like to attend as a reader or as an author, drop us an email and we’ll add you to our mailing list!

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas from the Foreword Festival team!

We had a great day on Saturday at Festive Foreword, our Christmas Book Fair. 13 local authors shared their books and literary goodies with the readers of Bury St Edmunds, who supported us in spite of the terrible weather!

A huge thank you to everyone who came to the event, chatted to our authors, and bought books and gifts. It was lovely to meet you!

Our next book fair, Love Your Local Authors, is taking place at the Constitutional Club on Guildhall Street on February 11th. Come along and treat yourself – and the bookworm in your life – to signed editions, postcards, and unique literary goodies. There will be a licensed bar from midday, lots of warm and comfy seating – and entry to the event is FREE!

See you there …
