Venue: Browsers Bookshop

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to judge the Booker Prize?

The highly respected publisher, Liz Calder was on this year’s panel, which made the unprecedented decision to appoint two winners for 2019.

Find out more about the process, and learn something of Liz’s astonishing career.

Liz Calder first worked in publishers Victor Gollancz and Jonathan Cape before co-founding Bloomsbury, the home of 'Harry Potter'. She launched the careers of Salman Rushdie, Julian Barnes, Anita Brookner and helped nurture Jeanette Winterson, Anne Michaels and Angela Carter.

Having lived in Suffolk for 14 years, she founded a publishing company celebrating writing in East Anglia, and she launched the arts festival Flipside, which this year takes place on 16 November at Henham Park.

Last year she was recognised with a CBE, elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and awarded the Benson Medal for exceptional service to literature.

This will be a fascinating, stimulating and entertaining evening.
