Faber & Faber is one of the world’s greatest independent publishers. Literary superstars like T.S. Eliot, William Golding, Ted Hughes, and Sylvia Plath are synonymous with the name ‘Faber’. But what is the real tale behind the house that brought together these authors? And how did a tiny firm set up by two men in 1925 – weathering obstacles from wartime paper shortages to dramatic financial crashes – survive to this very day?
Grab a coffee from the library cafe, and join Toby Faber, grandson of the founding Faber, in conversation with Paul Millar. Hear stories about one of the most famous publishing houses in the world and its notorious authors, and about Toby’s enthralling new thriller, Close to the Edge.
Books will be for sale thanks to Scorpio Books.
