Jeremy Poynting at Black Book Fair 25th anniversary

Richmond Building
University of Bradford
Saturday 7 July, 2.30-3.45pm

25 years since the Black Book Fair was last held in Bradford, the Bradford Literature Festival gathers together a panel to discuss the history of the Fair and what it did to change the world of publishing. Created to celebrate the growth of radical ideas in literature and politics, this panel will consider whether the Black Book Fair paved the way for the current conversation about the publishing industry's lack of diversity.

Join us for an engaging discussion, featuring Sharmilla Beezmohun and our very own Jeremy Poynting, exploring the Fair’s contribution to the book fair tradition - including the development of the George Padmore Institute in north London - and its wider legacy.
