Lennie Goodings - Radical Women in Publishing at The Lowry, Salford 28 March 2020 Tickets from £15 — Book now

Due to the ongoing situation with  COVID-19, this event has been cancelled.  Words Weekend Artistic Director Beth Gallimore’s statement reads:

It is with huge sadness that we have taken the decision to cancel Words Weekend at The Lowry following the escalation of COVID-19 in Europe. Although this is an incredibly difficult decision, the health of authors and audiences must be the priority.

The cancellation of London Book Fair was an early indicator of the impact COVID-19 would have on our industry, and given the fast-changing nature of the situation, we feel we must act quickly and decisively.

All ticket holders will be contacted directly by the venue.

We will be pressing ahead with our plans for Bury St Edmunds in May, our spring 2021 festival at Sage Gateshead, and hope to plan another festival at The Lowry in the future.

Lennie Goodings has worked with some of the biggest names in literary history, including Margaret Atwood, Marilynne Robinson, Sarah Waters, Linda Grant, Naomi Wolf and Maya Angelou since joining Virago Press in 1978. This event is a roll-call of the important moments in feminist publishing, a celebration of the career of a remarkable person, and a call to arms recognising how far there still is to go to achieve proper representation in publishing.
