Saturday October 12th 12.30pm - 3.00pm the St Mark's Church Hall
Throughout Saturday, we're giving a carefully chosen selection of the most exciting and innovative publishers around an opportunity to share with you what makes them so special.
This will culminate in a discussion at The Big Green Bookshop in the evening, where a representative of each of these publishers will be on a panel discussing the book industry and its future.
We've given each publisher completely free reign to do whatever they like, but each of them has come up with something that should tempt you give them a visit.
