A talk from Anna Faherty at The Galley Club explores the subject with us. BOOK HERE for this event
Fiction or non-fiction? It’s the first decision we make when we enter a bookshop and it defines many of our reading identities. But why, in an age of ‘curation’, does everyone cling to this divide? At best, it helps us know what we’re getting. At worst, it hinders book discovery.
Anna’s talk will challenge how publishers and booksellers develop, label and present stories of all kinds, both on and offline. She’ll be blurring the lines between fiction and non-fiction, shaking up bookshop tables and sharing her passion for ‘generous browsing’. Expect an evening of diverse and provocative ponderings, from Netflix algorithms to the power of story and the right way to do curation.

I keep meeting people who have been given poor advice from others. This is the most common piece of advice I hear given to entry level candidates: ‘You must have three months work experience in publishing to get a job; if you can’t get a paid job, then work unpaid’. I’ve also heard this advice […]
