Event description
Handheld Press is on a mission: to recover forgotten stories and fabulous authors from the past.

About this event

Westminster Libraries present a talk by Kate Macdonald, literary historian and Director of Handheld Press, to explain their mission: to recover forgotten stories and fabulous authors from the past. She will describe what it was like setting up a publishing house from scratch, making mistakes, finding treasures in the archives and making beautiful books.

Join Kate to discover:

• Her peculiar dual thirty-year career as editor and literary historian.

• The fun story of setting up Handheld Press and why she chose forgotten stories.

• The authors, the discoveries, the triumphs and the disasters.

• The picture research and why judging a book by its cover is definitely important.

We look forward to welcoming you at the event!
