The Life of a Book: with 404 Ink and Chris McQueer

  • Cabaret Bar 60 Pleasance EH8 9TJ Edinburgh, United Kingdom (map)

Come along to hear publisher 404 Ink and their author Chris McQueer discuss how a book goes from an idea to printing, and all the nitty gritty in between!!

In collaboration with the Festival of Creative learning, we hope to bring you an informative and entertaining evening, in which we will outline the ‘life’ of a book, from idea to publication. We will be joined by co-founders of publishing house 404 Ink, Heather McDaid and Laura Jones, and one of their authors, Chris McQueer. We’ll hear about publishing from practical and artistic perspectives, including a wee excerpt from one of Chris’s darkly hilarious books. If you are interested in writing, publishing, or are just really keen on books, please do join us to hear from these wonderful speakers!
