Nicola Beauman, of beloved publisher Persephone Books, returns to Durham for a special afternoon tea. Join Nicola as she talks about her 20 years of running Persephone, which reprints fiction, short stories, cookery books and memoirs by mid-20th century women writers including Noel Streatfeild, Dorothy Whipple and EM Delafield.

She will also be launching Persephone’s two October titles: The Call (1924) by Edith Zangwill, about a woman scientist who becomes a suffragette, and National Provincial (1938) by Lettice Cooper, about politics in Leeds in the mid 1930s.

Ticket price includes a tea or coffee and cake .
