Celebrating Women in Publishing

Precious Event

An International Women’s Month Event 

Sponsored by Pearson PLC

Come and join us as we celebrate International women’s Month with this exciting event.  

Precious is celebrating women in publishing by giving you this rare opportunity to hear from award winning author Bernardine Evaristo and Guardian writer and author Hannah Pool. 

They’ll be reading excerpts from their books and taking your questions.

We also have Rebecca Gray, from Serpents Tail on hand to tackle your questions about getting you published!  All this and the opportunity to network with some like minded individuals over drinks and canapes.

We look forward to seeing you there! 

Hannah Pool 

Author and journalist Hannah Pool is feature writer on the Guardian Newspaper. 

After studying for a post graduate diploma in Journalism at City University, Hannah joined the Guardian in 1996 as a trainee reporter.

 Since joining the Guardian over ten years ago, Hannah has had many roles on the newspaper, including:  Commissioning Editor  (G2), Beauty & Wellbeing Editor (Weekend) and columnist.

Best known for her column The New Black, a black beauty column which ran for five years in Guardian Weekend Magazine, Hannah was awarded   ‘Journalist of the Year’ by the European Federation of Black Women Business Owners In 2006.

 Hannah’s first book, My Fathers’ Daughter, was published by Penguin in 2005. My Fathers’ Daughter is a story of race, family and belonging, which tells of Hannah’s journey to Eritrea to meet her birth family. Hannah is currently working on her second book.  

 Bernardine Evaristo

Award-winning author Bernardine Evaristo has been hailed as one of Britain’s most original writers. Her novels have been described as ‘Funky yarns so tantalising you want to devour them’ (The Guardian) and ‘Glittering fiction whose words leap off the page into life. Brilliant!’ (The Times).  

Her books include:

A novel-in-verse Lara (ARP, 1997) about her family history with roots in England, Nigeria, Ireland, Brazil and Germany. 

And three books with Hamish Hamilton/Penguin that include a forthcoming novel, without poetry, Blonde Roots (2008), which turns history on its head with Africans enslaving Europeans as its backdrop.  

Bernardine also co- edited, with the novelist Maggie Gee, the British Council/Granta anthology NW15 (New Writing 15) in 2007.  

She initiated the 2006 Free Verse Arts Council-funded report into why so few poets of colour are published in the UK, and upon its publication initiated The Complete Works mentoring project for poets of colour with Spread the Word literature development agency.  

She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
