It’s FREE! There’s no admission fee for attending the KMC Book Fayre, but… PLEASE BOOK via the website to ensure your complimentary drink and a seat for the readings: http://www.kissmecupcakes.co.uk
Books: Great to read with coffee and cake! Often written by writers while sitting in coffee shops eating cake. Fun to write, read and share.
Coffee & Cake: A great combination. Often referred to in author circles as ‘writers’ fuel’! A good reason to leave the house, enjoy something special and meet new people.
People: Also known as – customers, authors, readers and a variety of other pseudonyms!
What happens when we combine all these ingredients into one?…
KISS ME CUPCAKES BOOK FAYRE!
A Book Fayre where coffee, cake, books and people combine! We thought we’d bring them all together at Kiss Me Cupcakes & Cakes – an opportunity for people to learn about Kiss Me Cupcakes (and taste their wares), meet local authors and buy their books.
Kiss Me Cupcakes & Cakes was founded in 2008 by Dali and Maz, inspired by their love of travel, coffee culture in South America and an Australian cupcake shop. Their delicacies are ‘made with love’ and they always aim to make you smile!
KMC Book Fayre is a gathering of local authors, of various genres, including Children’s, Fantasy, Floristry, Historical, Drama and Poetry. There’ll be a complimentary warm mulled drink on arrival between 1pm-1.30pm and a chance to munch cake and mingle with the authors! From 2pm each author will be providing a demonstration or giving a reading of their work, followed by Q&A sessions and more chances to buy cakes/books.
NOW MEET THE AUTHORS!
