LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW TO READ…?
NEWCASTLE CITY LIBRARY
33 New Bridge Street West
Newcastle upon Tyne
11am to 4pm, Saturday 18 February 2017
The last few years has seen an explosion of new small presses and independent publishers around the country, publishing new and exciting fiction and poetry. If you are a keen reader and want to know more about the difference being a small press makes to how they work and what they publish, come along to hear from two local independent presses, Myrmidon Books and Red Squirrel Press, and writers Ellen Phethean and Valerie Laws.
Small presses are often able to give much more attention to the physical characteristics of the book, and the day will include discussion of this. If you think it’s fine to judge a book by its cover – and typeface, paper and page layout! – this is the event for you.
