Closing Event: From ‘William’ to ‘Sofia’, What Is A Persephone Book?

The Assembly Rooms
Sunday 21st April
5pm to 6pm

The founder of Persephone Books, Nicola Beauman, will give a talk about the qualities that, she hopes, make a Persephone book. What are some of the themes that unite them? How are they chosen? How important is plot, character, setting? And why have they been neglected for so long? This rare insight into the Persephone Books editorial process closes out the Persephone Festival.
