I think it's a great pity that publicity for this event is so very poor! Whoever is oriniasgng it (Hm.. Yes Who ??) appears to think that people will magically appear as the result of Twitter or Facebook! OK- the internet IS free, but the Book Festival website can only be found by someone who is actually searching for it; and from there it is complicated!Where are the POSTERS? All the BedfordBid shops could surely display some, as well as Libraries, Pubs and other Social centres It is the TOWN you are seeking to publicise, I take it?Have the local papers been told? And what about local radio? In2Beats is Bedford Community Radio I'm sure they would like to participate in some way!
