Greetings fellow booklovers.
The Taiwan Book Fest is back bigger, better, and with more alliteration.
“Don’t jump Richard. We love your new book.”
12:00 to 6:00, Sunday, April 21, 2013
The first floor of the Fruit Wine Building, Huashan 1914 Creative Park, Taipei. It’s a short walk from Zhongxiao Xinsheng MRT station. Last time, in 2011, we had the Book Fest in Alleycat’s pizza restaurant at Huashan, but this time we have a bigger, quieter venue in an adjacent building. The venue is on the 1st floor of the Fruit Wine Building; It’s on the left as you enter Huashan from the road, across from Alleycat’s restaurant.
There will be presentations from authors, authors manning tables with their book, and other authors running about free-range. The emphasis is on people chatting. There will be book sales, new and old, and a book exchange. If you have books which you want to sell, bring them along and we’ll give you some space.
It’s free for everyone, and we don’t take a cut on any books sold. We’re doing this out of a love of books, because it’s fun, and because it helps writers. However, if, at the end of the event, you have a few second-hand books that you didn’t manage to exchange or sell, we wouldn’t refuse them being donated to Alleycat’s bookshelves.
Remember, as Groucho Marx said, “Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”
