The Authors’ Forum is a relatively new idea at the Bird Fair but it has certainly caught on.
It allows authors to talk about their latest books and the audience to question them – or just have a look at the face, listen to the voice and explore the thoughts of the person whose name appears on the cover of their favourite nature book. And if you were wondering about whether to buy a book or not, then five minutes in the company of its author will probably seal the deal one way or another.
And publishers like it because they can flog books to you (authors like it for that reason too)!
