Avon Book Fest


In what has been a period of uncertainty, we’re delighted to be able to bring our authors and readers together in Avon’s first ever virtual festival.
We know a lot of people are using books during this time even more than usual and all of our authors were so excited to come out and meet you face to face during the next few months, but as that can’t happen right now, we’re excited to be bringing them to you.
You’ll find full details of the schedule below. You’ll be able to ‘buy’ tickets on EventBrite very soon – the tickets will be free however we’re using these to ensure we keep an eye on our numbers so that our technology won’t be put under any pressure. Be sure to leave your email address when you order a ticket, and you’ll be sent the Zoom link to watch the event.
