Last week, I was asked to attend City University and talk about the world of bookselling, along with Tim Godfray (CEO of The Booksellers Association), Frances Tay (co-founder of Woolfson and Tay) and Miriam Robinson (head of Marketing at Foyles).
We were each asked to give a fifteen minute speech about our experience within the industry, how it's changing and our hopes for the future. It was a really wonderful evening, with lots of hopes and thoughts on change and adaptation. I've recorded my speech separately, so you can have a listen to it. I hope you like it. Bookshops are worth fighting for.
Why Bookshops Are Worth It
