As the winning author for 2013, Seán Hogan will take pride of place at the upcoming Tipperariana Book Fair in Fethard on Sunday 9th February from 2pm to 6pm. Seán will attend so as to promote, sell and sign his book and to chat at length with the many people who are intensely interested in that pivotal period of our history. Seán will be joined by other Tipperary authors and by 34 book dealers – of mostly second hand and antiquarian books – from all over Ireland. There will also be thousands of lower priced ‘donated books’ for sale , and anyone wishing to donate books to help raise funds for the Fethard Historical Society can do so by phoning 086 390 53 73 and collection will be arranged.
With an entrance fee of only €2, a café and a live piano player, Fethard Book Fair represents great value for money indeed - a fact noted by the Irish Times Magazine last Sunday (under ‘tip number 22’) in an article entitled ‘50 ways to make it to payday!’ (Further information from www.tipperariana.com).
