Throughout the last three years we have been pleased to offer followers of the Cowbridge Book Festival and visitors to our picturesque market town a varied and stimulating series of events. Feed back from the authors and publicists has been very positive with many commenting on the engaged and friendly audiences at each event.
Our aim for 2014 is to continue to stage interesting author events covering a variety of genres that will appeal to a wide range of book lovers of all ages and all walks of life. We are delighted to announce that the first event, this year, will be the celebrated author, Rosie Thomas presenting her eagerly awaited new novel, The Illusionists (see 2014 Events). Other exciting events will be announced when dates are confirmed
Trustees are delighted to announce that in 2013 the Festival raised £4,800 and the proceeds have been divided equally between Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and The Noah’s Ark Appeal, Children’s Hospital of Wales. This achievement would not have been possible without the support of all the authors who gave so generously of their time, a great team of volunteers who ensured the smooth running of the events and provided refreshments.
The Festival has donated over £25,000 to these charities since it’s inception 3 year ago.
