Foreword Book Fairs

The Foreword Festival team is back with a very special event in August! Join us on Saturday August 31st at Bury St Edmunds Library for a book fair that makes a difference.

East Anglian authors will be getting together to raise money and awareness for charities and other great causes. Every book makes a difference, and every visit raises awareness.

Join us on the day, buy a book, and Pay It Foreword!

More information coming soon … watch this space!

We’ll be running more book fairs later in 2024. If you’d like to attend as a reader or as an author, sign up for our mailing list, and we’ll make sure you hear about all our future Foreword Festival events in advance!
