Have you ever wondered why books disappear, novels are reissued, and authors fall out of fashion? Join Kate Macdonald of Handheld Press for an illustrated talk unpicking the mysteries of changing literary taste in twentieth-century British fiction and hear some startling truths about the publishing industry.

Dr Kate Macdonald is a former university lecturer and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing at Oxford Brookes University. She set up Handheld Press in 2017 to bring forgotten fiction and lost authors back into print and to publish new biographies and memoirs. A selection of Handheld Press books will be available for sale after the talk.
