R.B. Russell's Fifty Forgotten Books at Maggs Bros Ltd, Bedford Sq, London

Film, Media & Entertainment

Join author and Tartarus Press co-founder R.B. Russell to launch his new book, Fifty Forgotten Books.

South Yorkshire press And Other Stories launches Fifty Forgotten Books, in which R.B. Russell, author and publisher at Tartarus Press, takes us on a guided tour through the wonderful, macabre and obscure books that make up his legendary collection – and the sadly vanishing breed of second-hand booksellers from whom he acquired them.

Join us at the legendary antiquarian bookseller Maggs Bros Ltd, Bedford Square to celebrate the publication of this wonderfully warm love letter to a literary life well-lived and a rich exploration of forgotten histories of book-collecting and selling in Britain.

Short readings from RB Russell and his Tartarus Press co-publisher Rosalie Parker, and a chance for discussion. Refreshments provided.
