Narberth Books

 L-R Jan Newton Thorne Moore and me

"Well, the 2017 Narberth Book Fair is over and was a great success, says Judith Barrow, co-organiser with Thorne Moore.

I thought I’d give up this year. I decided that everyone’s seen enough pictures of me running in my Pancreatic Cancer UK vest so I’d run the Cardiff Half Marathon in six weeks time for myself.

Some 22,000 runners are taking part in the 2016 Cardiff University Half Marathon but as I thread my way through the crowd to my starting pen, I feel lonely and a bit daunted.

The Book Fair, the inspired brain-child of author Judith Barrow in 2013, began life in St Mary's Church House, in Tenby as the first event of the Tenby Arts Festival. It has grown, year by year, ever more successful, with more and more authors eager to participate, so that now we need bigger premises and longer hours and we have found the ideal home in the Queen's Hall in Narberth, with ample room for book stalls, talks and workshops.

I'm running to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer UK because pancreatic cancer survival rates are still too low.
