Making Books for Love and Money: On the Value of Small Presses
Thursday 15 November at 7.00 p.m.
London Review Bookshop, Bury Place, London WC1
with Charles Boyle, David Lea, Nicholas Lezard, Patrick McGuiness and Nicholas Murray
As the book world undergoes some of the biggest changes in its history, we ask what the value will be of small presses in the new literary landscape – and what those values are that they hold that make them so important for the future of the book. Discussing the question will be a panel made up of publisher, author, critic and bookseller, with Nicholas Murray, biographer and publisher of Rack Press, Charles Boyle of CB Editions, critic Nicholas Lezard, whose column in the Saturday Guardian has championed countless gems from small presses, Patrick McGuinness, poet and author of The Last Hundred Days (Seren), longlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2011, and our own David Lea, bookseller at the London Review Bookshop.
