Lennie Goodings and Linda Grant
Books, Writers and Virago
Lennie Goodings, Chair of the publishing house Virago Press, has published some of the greatest writers of recent decades: Sarah Waters, Marilynne Robinson, Margaret Atwood and Maya Angelou among them. She has now written her own memoir about Virago Press, A Bite of the Apple. As a very early member of the publisher, she has continued to help lead the way for women writers in the UK, and we’re delighted that she is joined by one of her authors, Linda Grant, to talk about her latest novel, A Stranger City. Virago has published Linda’s books, for eighteen of her bestselling and award-winning writing years. Join us for a wonderful opportunity to see how a successful writer and publisher relationship can lead to magnificent books.
Wine and soft drinks will be available.
