Description

Margaret Willes looks at the Stationers’ contribution to the evolution of bookselling and the creation of bestsellers. She will highlight how the growth of the railway built the business of William Henry Smith from a street ‘Newswalk’ in Mayfair to a nationwide network. Margaret Willes brings the story up to date with a review of a famous Stationer of today - Vint Cerf, one of the ‘Fathers of the Internet’.

Includes wine reception.
