Every so often we come across some fantastic local books and we think they would be of interest to you too.

Most books by regional authors and publishers can be found in local bookshops across Norfolk and East Anglia. We recommend buying locally to help the local economy. But if you need to buy online then they are also available on Amazon, so we’ve included some links below to help you find them.


For starters, there’s books by local independent publisher, Paul Dickson, who you can find out more about on NorfolkPlaces. That seems like a good place to start, so here are some books published by Paul.

One of the earliest articles on NorfolkPlaces was an interview with author, Keri Beevis. Here’s Keri’s books.

Another author interviewed on NorfolkPlaces is Henry Sutton, who writes undo the crimer-writing pen name Harry Brett.

The latest author to appear on NorfolkPlaces, the best showcase for Norfolk, is Mark Towers. His delightful books, The Christmas Starfish and Strawberry Scoreberries, are available on Amazon.

Here’s a few more books about Norfolk that we have enjoyed or think will be worth a read.

There are lots of great books out there about Norfolk and East Anglia or by locally based authors and publishers. Local book stores are likely to have special sections with local interest titles. If you’re not able to get to the shops and are looking to buy online then using the links on this page help us to continue providing our services in the community.

Before you head off to do some shopping, these offers below might be handy if you’re planning on buying some books from Amazon.
