Rhondda Book Fair (September 2nd)

Rhondda Book Fair (September 2nd)

The Rhondda Book Fair 2017 is fast approaching, and this year Parthian's Richard Davies, Sion Tomos Owen, and Rachel Trezise will be attending.

The fair, organised by Colin R. Parsons (children's and Young Adult fiction author), will see a lineup of twenty-five authors from different genres attending, with the opportunity to buy books and have them signed. There will also be author panels throughout the day where you can sit and listen, or ask questions yourself, and these will be chaired by Matt Lees.

The fair, now in its third year, will have a special guest - the new Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf, Councillor Margaret Tegg, who will be addressing the audience with a small speech at around 11am.

The Book Fair is being held at the SOAR Chapel Community Centre in Penygraig (Rhondda, CF40 1JZ) on Saturday the 2nd of September, from 10.30am to 3pm.

The event is FREE, with parking available nearby and refreshments available to purchase.
