Toby Faber: Faber & Faber The Untold Story

15th October 2022, 12:00 pm-1:00 pm
Holy Trinity Parish Centre

Come on an illustrated tour of one of the twentieth-century’s great literary archives, telling the story of how Faber has survived depression, war and the passing generations to become the UK’s leading independent publisher. Read about TS Eliot taking on a ‘boy named Auden’ (but also turning down Animal Farm), Lord of the Flies being rescued from the slush pile, despite a reader labelling it ‘rubbish and dull’, and Kazuo Ishiguro enclosing return postage with his first submission.
