About the event

Seven Fables is delighted to be among the many wonderful independent bookshops at this year's Book Market...

Organised by Exeter City of Literature, The Book Market will take place this year in the beautiful city centre on the Cathedral Green.

The day plays host to authors with local literary ties for a series of live talks, panels, and discussions. Enjoy leisurely browsing the diverse and eclectic bookstalls, join one or two of the many literary activities, and for lunch stop at one of the vendors producing tempting dishes of local produce.

The Seven Fables’ pop-up bookstall will feature a selection of our favourite titles, alongside new publications that have caught our eye, all carefully curated to capture our ethos and reading passions - a love of nature, art, poetry, folklore, and fairy tale - from beloved classics to cutting edge literature.

Other booksellers and vendors on the day include Celandine Books, Bookbag, Design For Today, The Old Queeriosity Shop, Inky Fingers, First Draft Books, The Ivy Bridge Bookshop, and Exeter Library – you’ll be spoilt for choice!

We look forward to seeing you in Exeter.


Exeter was awarded a UNESCO City of Literature designation in 2019 in recognition of outstanding contributions to culture and creativity and the wealth of literary heritage in the city, thanks to a multi-partner bid.

Exeter City of Literature believes in the power of words to imagine new possibilities for our world. As a charity, they champion stories and storytellers locally and globally, working with partners in the community and with UNESCO Cities of Literature around the world.
