Putting a Face to the Book: The Power of Author's Talks

Thursday 3rd July 2014 4:30pm - 5:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Curated by The London Book Fair, this special panel will discuss the changing agenda in author-reader engagement.

Join speakers from across the book industry during the 7th Independent Booksellers' Week to debate the opportunities and challenges of author engagement in the 21st century literary community. The discussion will include questions such as 'Can the self-published author be writer, publisher and promoter?' and 'How can an author balance profile-building with the day job of writing?'. Our speakers will explore how author-reader engagement has changed and the extent to which authors can be their own ambassadors at literary events.
