This Saturday (March 17th) will see the annual States of Independence publishing fair at De Montfort University in Leicester.
There's a full programme of readings, seminars, lectures and other events, and most importantly of all a long list of small presses will be present - there's no better chance to sample and buy their books, or to put faces to names you've previously only known in print.
I'll leave you to make up your own minds about the highlights of the schedule, but there's enough there to keep me busy all day, and I'll be reporting on it all next week.
Entry is free, and the fair runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm. Hope to see you there.
