Book Fairs and Literary Festivals

book award winner



Book fairs and literary events area great way to spend a vacation, and a brilliant way to promote books.

Once again, in 2021, most book events are taking place virtually. While this is disappointing to those who enjoy travelling to literary festivals, it is also now possible to take part in more events than ever before from the comfort of your own home.

Let us know if we've missed something, or if there's a category you're looking for that we haven't gotten to yet.
