From Stella and Tony - the organisers.
‘With more than forty of our best writers participating we have a treasure trove of events for you to choose from. The book presentations will cover every genre from historical to autobiographical, crime, poetry, romance, travel, gardening and sport. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and chat with the authors and purchase signed copies of their books.
This year we have become a registered charity with the specific aims of promoting an interest in literacy, book reading and creative writing and also to raise much needed funds for worthy causes.
Our chosen charities for 2012 are The Noah’s Ark Appeal, Children’s Hospital of Wales and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
We look forward to welcoming you and hope you enjoy the 2nd Cowbridge Book Festival’
