Anyway, here's the info about the free event in Edinburgh. I'm not sure if I can go but I'll try.
6:30pm Tuesday 17 November 2009
Reference Library Reading Room
Edinburgh Central Library, George IV Bridge
A new series of literary events at Edinburgh Central Library focusing on the important relationship between writer and publisher: the series kicks off with prize-winning, celebrated author Michel Faber and Jamie Byng, his publisher at Edinburgh-based independent, Canongate Books.
Faber’s first book Some Rain Must Fall and Other Stories was published in 1998 by Canongate, who has published all his subsequent seven works – Under the Skin, The Hundred and Ninety-Nine Steps, The Courage Consort, The Fahrenheit Twins and Other Stories , The Apple, The Crimson Petal and the White and most recently The Fire Gospel, which was published last year. This session will explore this successful, ongoing relationship and examine, amongst other things, the influence that author and publisher can have on one another.
There will be a reading from Faber, an audience Q&A session and a book signing.
The event is FREE and complimentary drinks will be served. Booking is essential: email firstname.lastname@example.org.
