WE ARE SORRY THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES.  NEW DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED AS SOON AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.

The Contemporary Small Press will be hosting two live events at the Library of  Birmingham this month, supported using public funding by Arts Council England.  Our previous Reading and Being Read event at the British Library was a huge success – now we’re taking that show on the road and will be visiting three other city libraries this autumn and winter.  First stop: Birmingham.

Reading and Being Read: Making Books

Thursday 22 September 2016, 6-8pm – POSTPONED

Mezzanine Café, Library of Birmingham

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. Come for an evening of discussion, demonstration and investigation into all that goes into making books as objects with other keen readers, practitioners and local small press publishers.

Tickets are £3, and can be booked via The Box by clicking here.

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 small presses, The Emma Press and Ayebia Press. They will each be presenting one of their writers, who will read from recently published work.

One thought on “POSTPONED Reading & Being Read: in Birmingham

  1. So sorry we can’t come – much as we’d love to. Linen Press was a participant at the London British Library Event which was a huge success. If you interested in books and the process of producing books, go along. The Contemporary Small Press project has a great team, tons of experience and knowledge, and they’ll welcome you.
