The well-read may rejoice as Foyles lay on another set of publisher days this autumn. First up is Indie Weekend on 11-12 September with PD James, Geoff Dyer, Emily Woof, Philip Kerr and many more participating in talks, discussions, readings, Q&A and even speed-authoring, offering you 1:1 facetime over brunch, in the manner of an elongated literary speed date.
The Independent Alliance is a network of independent publishers, joined together to ensure their extraordinarily diverse output reaches the widest audience possible. Publishing everything from internationally best-selling crime-writers to Booker Prize winners, to those undiscovered gems only an independent house can unearth.
