Tue 20th May to Sat 24th May 2008
May as you explore the medieval streets and yards of Diss. Look
out for authors signing their work along the route. The fine Corn
Hall plays host to Antiquarian book dealers bringing rich volumes
on a variety of subjects.
Open the door to St Mary’s Church to find it festooned
with literary inspired floral arrangements and discover
the ancient arts of papermaking, bookbinding, and marbling.
Meanwhile “Wally the Worm” and his creator will delight children
in the market place with interactive tales in song and verse. The
United Reformed Church – opposite the Mere’s mouth has new
and nearly new books on sale. Wind down at the end of the day
with a poetry reading at the No.13 Wine Bar.
The Book Fair concludes a week of events for bookworms and
booklovers including the chance for children to make their own
pop up book under guidance from novelty book expert Robert
Crowther on the 21st at Diss Publishing Company. Neil Storey
will be on hand with tales of Norfolk Dark Deeds and Hauntings
at St Mary’s Church on the 23rd – with spellbinding musical
entertainment. If you love books – make Diss your destination!
