Persephone Books Morning Coffee

  • This event has passed.

Nicola Beauman

Sunday 15th October 10:15 - 11:15 | Royal Yacht Squadron

Nicola Beauman, author and founder of Persephone Books, will soon celebrate twenty years reprinting lost mid twentieth-century classics mainly, but not entirely, by women. In conversation with biographer, Anne Sebba, who has written introductions to three Persephone books, Nicola will talk about how and why she started her imprint and why she called it Persephone. She will explain how the books (which now number 125) are chosen and the unique way they are sold.  Nicola and Anne will also discuss a myriad of issues to do with women and writing as well as why the interwar years were such a stellar period for women writers. A selection of Persephone books will be on sale for a special Festival price of £10 (instead of £13). Ticket includes morning coffee!
