Reading Europe: Remembering Gary Pulsifer
Wednesday 22nd June 2016
19:00 at Waterstones, London - Piccadilly
Reading Europe is an initiative from 16 UK Independent Publishers to give a cultural dimension to the EU Referendum Campaign. There are 24 countries in the EU in addition to the 4 countries in the British Isles and Commonwealth and the Referendum provides a perfect opportunity to find out something more about fellow members and neighbours. The 49 recommended titles have been selected to let the reader know the literature, history and culture of each country better.
Gary Pulsifer acted as an advisor to Reading Europe and the promotion includes 6 of the books he published while at Arcadia. Gary died from cancer 2 months ago and Reading Europe wants to celebrate his contribution to European literature in translation. He was an independent publisher who made a difference.
There will be readings by Amanda Hopkinson, Boyd Tonkins,Karen Sullivan and Sian Williams, from books translated from Dutch, French, Hungarian and Latvian included in the promotion and published by Gary.
Tickets are £5 and all monies raised will be donated to the Book Trade Charity who cared for Gary at The Retreat in Kings Langley.
