Broadside Day

Broadside Day

The Broadside Day is the annual one-day conference for people interested in street literature in all its fascinating aspects – broadsides, chap books, songsters, woodcuts, engravings, last dying speeches, catchpennies, wonder-tales, almanacs, fortune tellers, and all kinds of cheap printed material sold to ordinary people in the city streets, at country fairs, and from pedlar’s packs up and down the country in past centuries. The day consists of short papers, presentations, displays, discussions, and is suitable for beginners and experts alike.
