The festival has featured in the Manchester Evening News (hooray), including in the City Life feature of tonight's edition. Hope you saw the pieces in the Bury Times and the Prestwich Guide about us last week too: both papers have been fantastically supportive of the festival. Here's a link to a Bury Times interview with EM Powell about our historic fiction evening in tribute to best selling Prestwich novelist Beverly Hughes.
Our poetry events are getting some good publicity: there's a great feature on Tony Walsh and his All Star poetry slam in this week's Bury Times. And here's a write up for our poetry events over at everything-you-need-to-know-about-poetry site Write Out Loud.
Out in the blogosphere there are interviews with me (Ebba) on organising the Book Festival on EM Powell's author blog and about life, writing and the Prestwich Book Festival at Not Made for Northern Weather
And our Bank Holiday special An Evening of Strange and Dark Fictions featuring Rosie Garland (May 27) has been featuring on blogs: on Rosie's, on Simon Bestwick's, and on Hannah Kate.
Our headline event with Jay Rayner at Manchester Jewish Museum (June 6) gets a preview at Manchester Wire, a lovely looking website if I ever saw one.
Bury Council kindly press released our events this week. Bury Libraries featured us on their Facebook page. And here we are on the Visit Manchester website too.
If you see a mention of the Prestwich Book Festival anywhere else, do let me know so we can feature it here. Thankyou to all media and listings outlets for the publicity: we couldn't do it without you.
