Turn The Page Artists Book Fair was a two-day annual event and the only fair of its type in the eastern region.

The fair, held on May 25 and 26, offered a unique platform for artists whose work is book-based.

Turn The Page 2018 featured work by more than 60 individual artists, small and fine presses, independent publishers and artists groups.

Turn The Page features live music, poetry and artist talks, as well as the fair's first symposium, a more academic event of discussion.
