AUTHOR CITY (Birmingham) 2022

APS Books is co-hosting the UK’s biggest and best author signing event ever alongside the opening of the Commonwealth Games. The date is Saturday 16th July 2022 from 9am to 5pm in the amazing Banqueting Suite at Birmingham Council House (Victoria Square behind the Floozie In The Jacuzzi) followed by an evening’s fun and games for attending authors including Authors Afloat, an alcohol-fuelled narrowboat tour of a city with ‘More canals than Venice’.

Author full tables are £75 and half tables £45 but make your decision without delay because we’re already two thirds of the way towards a sell out – email apsbooks@virginmedia.com

Another huge step forward for APS Books – our first ever paperback – a lovely job by Inky Finger Printers – silver embossing on grey cloth-bound hardcover.
