Berwick Literary Festival 2017

Berwick Literary Festival: Mary Manley: Barter Books

Berwick Literary Festival 2017

England's most northerly town will once again be playing host to a four-day celebration of books and authors. Dozens of talks, workshops and other events will be staged between October 19th and 22nd at venues all over Berwick. There's something for everyone, from children to adult readers, from budding writers to history buffs. The festival promises to be every bit as entertaining as in 2015 & 2016.

Mary is the founder of Barter Books, Alnwick – one of the largest secondhand bookshops in Britain. Her talk will cover the history of Barter Books - including the business partnership with her husband, Stuart - which began in 1991 with a budget of £4,000 and an 800 sq ft space and grew to an 8,000 sq ft shop attracting over 300,000 customers a year.
