The Bath & Bristol Small Publishers’ Gathering will be a day of small publishers talking to each other, and to their customers, about their books, on Saturday 3 November, 2018, in Bath at the Friends’ Meeting House on York Street.
The morning will be a trade event, with speakers and networking. The afternoon will open the Gathering to the public with free entry, to buy and sell books. Kate Macdonald of Handheld Press and Samantha Walton of Bath Spa University and Sad Press have organised the Gathering, in order to meet other small publishers, and get to know the publishing community in the west of England.
Douglas Westcott, the author of the bestselling Go Swift and Far and An Unfolding Soul, will be attending the event. He is an integral part of the literary landscape in the west of England setting both of his gripping novels in the historic city of Bath. Go Swift and Far was Westcott’s first novel and is an astounding bestseller selling over 10,000 copies in Bath alone. His latest novel, An Unfolding Soul is out now.
