The next meeting will be on THURSDAY November 21st, at Blackwell’s book shop. 7pm-9pm.
The speaker will be Norah Perkins who is a literary agent at Curtis Brown, one of the World’s biggest and most influential agencies.
After four years as the managing editor at the independent publisher Canongate Books, Norah joined Curtis Brown in May 2013, to work with Karolina Sutton in the book department. As well as assisting Karolina with her list, which includes writers such as Haruki Murakami, James Salter, George Saunders, Malala Yousafzai, Grace Dent and Alan Garner, I’m always on the lookout for challenging, original voices in fiction and non-fiction, and for stories that keep me reading into the small hours. I grew up on the west coast of Canada, moved to Edinburgh in 2008, and now live in London, where when I’m not reading manuscripts, I’m (slowly) restoring an antique Golding Pearl letterpress.
