We're pleased to announce that the Festival is now fully booked.
We have a wide selection of talent who will be exhibiting their work, covering adult fiction, children's books with delightful illustrations, some non-fiction books including autobiography, sewing machine embroidery & demo, a poet, a book publisher, an illustrator, a book binder & repairer and a second hand book stall.
Something for everyone.
We're hoping to have a number of speakers from the above, but this is yet to be confirmed.

This year the book festival team are inviting local businesses to be part of the festival by decorating their shop windows to represent a book.
We hope this initiative will help promote local business, publicise the Book Festival and enliven the Town.
Local residents know how creative and skilful Southam retailers are at window dressing.
We all enjoy those attractive window displays reflecting seasons and commemorations and in October we may be able to see our favourite books portrayed in local shop windows - from 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ to ‘Pride and Prejudice’
It should be great fun - and local people will be able to vote for their favourite.
Watch this space.
