A Feminist Book Fortnight event

In June 2015 author Kamila Shamsie laid down a challenge to the male dominated publishing industry: “It is clear that there is a gender bias in publishing houses and the world of books. Well, enough. Why not try something radical? Make 2018 the Year of Publishing Women, in which no new titles should be by men”

The publisher And Other Stories duly decided to make this year the year they only published women.

At this event an editor from the publisher will talk about how this decision worked out, with guest readings from one of their authors and/or one of their translators.

Tickets: £3, including refreshments
