Sacristy Press and Durham Cathedral are hosting three “fringe” events as part of the 2014 Durham Book Festival.

Come and quiz our authors and listen to them speak about their writing at three events in the beautiful surroundings of Prior’s Hall at Durham Cathedral. The speakers will be on hand to sign copies of their books too!
