The Book Trade Charity BTBS hit the national papers this week. A crowdfunding scheme designed to help booksellers during Covid-19 received a donation of £250,000. This is in addition to the donations raised on a GoFundMe page set up by Gayle Lazda, Željka Marošević and Kishani Widyaratna.
In this episode of bookcareers Live we speak to the Operations Manager of BTBS, Glenda Barnard. Glenda talks to us about the donation, the fundraiser and how the charity can help individuals across the wider publishing industry. Take a listen to find out.
