In the run up to the Salisbury Literary Festival, our very own book fairies will be leaving books in and around the city. There will be four weekend book drops, and each one will either feature books by local authors, books by authors appearing at the festival, or books featuring Salisbury itself. There will also be one or two classics added to the lists too.
The Book Fairies are a wonderful, global enterprise, and we are delighted to add Salisbury to the list. You can read more about what the Book Fairies are all about here – ibelieveinbookfairies.com. The best way to follow our book drops is via our Twitter or Facebook pages. When a book is dropped, we will announce it, along with our official book fairy, Post Consumer Book Club.
Will you find one? If you find a book, read it, then set it free again for someone else to find. But almost as important as reading the book you find is telling others about it.
Post a picture to social media and tell the world #ibelieveinbookfairies!
