Manchester Independent Book Market

The Manchester Book Market, which first took place in Sep 2006, returns this summer as part of the Manchester International Festival for a three-day market (17-19 July) accompanied by back-to-back performances from the cream of Manchester’s spoken word scene. The market will give the public the opportunity to buy books directly from the UK’s leading independent publishers, as well as sample the latest emerging talent in spoken word from the North West. More details here.

Conrad will be reading over the weekend. Dates and times will be posted when they are made available.
