Manchester Indie Book Fair returns in September after a hugely successful outing back in February.
The book fair is organised by independent publisher Dostoyevsky Wannabe in association with the International Anthony Burgess Foundation and will feature a range of indie presses and zines from Manchester and beyond.
Already confirmed are: Comma, Dostoyevsky Wannabe, Carcanet, Confingo, Nightjar, Saraband, Knives, Forks and Spoons, Dodo Ink, Death of Workers Building Skyscrapers (all Manchester), Gordian Projects, And Other Stories, Longbarrow (Sheffield), Blue Moose (Hebden Bridge), Gold Flake Paint and Spam Zine (Glasgow), The Poetry Business (Sheffield), Valley Press (Yorkshire), Hi-Vis Press (Nottingham), Zimzalla (Manchester), Influx (London), Dead Ink (Liverpool).
The fair runs from 12pm—6pm and is free entry (reserve your ticket here). As always, Dostoyevsky Wannabe’s indie book fairs are a relaxed affair (no readings to stay quiet for, no spoons tapping against wine glasses) so come down and browse ‘n’ buy some books, grab a coffee or a beer, chat to the presses, stick around, buy some more books, chat to each other, have another drink, make an afternoon of it.
Book browsing music this time comes from Dostoyevsky Wannabe’s Invisible DJs with assistance from Spam Zine playing invisible music, not to mention the very real and very visible Ailsa McLaggan of the Living Room Dance Club playing vinyl.
We did it, @dw_wannabe! All the booky people came together and made a book fair! Open until 6pm today – free entry. pic.twitter.com/7beyg0H8Gl
