Confessions of a Publisher: It Needn’t Be Like This but Somehow It Is

  • This event has passed.

Ian Macpherson 3rd Baron Strathcarron

Sunday 14th October 11:45 - 12:45 | Northwood House

Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors and padded cells in a publisher’s headquarters? Unicorn Publishing Group’s Chairman Lord Strathcarron takes you inside the sanctum. Told alphabetically as a self-styled A to Z of Shame, you will find out why no-one knows how to pick winners and losers; discover how the book trade defines cataclysmic incompetence; learn why ‘copyright reserved’ are the two most misleading words in the English language; appreciate how clever software makes us all dumber; digest why long, liquid and libellous lunches are central to the day’s endeavour. And above all, see why the world would be a wonderful place if it wasn’t for authors.
