Five Revolutions and Counting – the Surprising Good News Story of what happened to Books in the 21st Century
7.30.p.m on Thursday, October 12th
Learning and Resources Centre, Bromsgrove School
Stephen Page’s eagerly anticipated talk, titled as above, had been scheduled for March earlier this year but, regrettably, was thwarted by an unexpected overnight snowfall.
With over ninety pre-sold tickets, WORDS has diligently worked to reschedule the event.
Stephen, a Bromsgrove native, serves as the Executive Chair of Faber and Faber, a renowned independent publishing powerhouse. He held the position of Chief Executive from 2001 to 2021.
During his talk, Stephen will provide a first hand account of the Book Industry’s evolution over the past two decades. He will illuminate how this industry not only survived but thrived, defying expectations of its demise in the face of digital transformation.
This narrative weaves together stories of maverick leaders, visionary booksellers, daring publishers, and the enduring influence of authors in a time marked by profound societal change. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain insights into the remarkable journey of the book industry.
Access to the venue is via the Worcester Road Entrance and Car Park (B61 7HP), and a buggy service will be provided for your convenience.
As all the previous tickets were refunded, tickets, at £12 each, for the new date are available either via the Ticket Source Website, or by sending a cheque, payable to WORDS, to Sycamore House, Rigby Hall, Rigby Lane, Bromsgrove, B60 2EW, including a S.A.E. and your email address (if you have one).
