Book fair to celebrate global work

A LEEDS publishing house is organising a book fair that aims to introduce readers to literature from around the world.

Work from countries such as Iraq, Pakistan, India, Romania and the USA will be celebrated at Mira Publishing’s cross-cultural event, which is taking place at the St Johns Shopping Centre next Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27.

The venue’s Rebecca Bilclough said: “We are delighted to be paying host to such a special event and hope that lots and lots of people will visit the centre to take a look at the wonderfully diverse range of literature that will be available. At St Johns we love to support the work of independent authors, artists and community groups.

“The event is entirely not for profit. All the volunteers are either students or provided by Leeds Volunteer Centre and all the money raised over the two days will be donated to community projects.”
