Event: Headline New Voices 2018, Manchester

How wonderful to have a book event in Manchester and better yet an invitation from Headline to attend

An event to celebrate the launch Headlines New Voices 2018. Down in the bowls of Lock 91 we gathered. Writers, publishers, booksellers, bloggers – book folk gathering to talk about books specifically five new books arriving in 2018 – we were were generously given food, drink and five book proofs. On a night many would prefer to be tucked up at home we had gathered not only from Manchester but several had travelled from further afield and, of course, our five writers and publishing team had travelled from London via Edinburgh to Manchester.

The books.
