Authors' Corner

Authors' Corner has been a major fixture and highlight of the Dragon Sale for many years. It functions as a sort of 'mini-literary festival', with the chance to meet authors and get signed copies of their latest books, which can make special and personal Christmas presents for family and friends.

All Authors’ Corner operations are underpinned by The Dragon Sale’s ethos of philanthropy. Authors do not get a cut of Authors’ Corner sales but are paid a royalty by their publishers based on the number of books purchased. Publishers supply books to The Dragon Sale on very favourable terms and also cover all delivery costs. This leaves a very high margin in each book sale – at least 50% of the cover price - to go directly to the charities our children choose. We hope you feel inspired by all the wonderful writers you meet at the signing tables in Authors’ Corner this year and feel comforted knowing how much of your money is going to good causes. We look forward to seeing you.

Rory Stewart

...has been much in the news of late; but as well as being a politician, he is also a highly-accomplished author. His book The Places In Between about his epic walk across Afghanistan in 2002 was hailed as an instant classic and won several awards. More recently he has written another travelogue closer to home, on walking through the borderland between England and Scotland with his father in The Marches. An unmissable opportunity to get signed copies and meet Rory! *signing from 10:00am - 10:45am*
