Shetland Noir Book Stall

Look out for the book stall which will be running throughout the festival weekend - in the downstairs foyer in Mareel. The stall will carry a selection of books by the six Special Guest Authors and selected titles by the other authors attending the festival. We will also be running a special posting service so if you have limited space to carry books, you can still purchase novels, get them signed by the author(s) and for an additional charge we will package them and post them to your chosen address.
