Looking Forward: The Next Ten Years

Tuesday, January 29th | Looking Forward: The Next Ten Years 

As Bloomsbury celebrates ten years of outstanding publishing as Bloomsbury Academic, we’ve invited some of our most fascinating authors to fill us in on the opportunities, challenges and biggest changes coming to our lives in the next ten years at Conway Hall on Tuesday, January 29th. 

Come along as our experts in the Humanities and Social Sciences present their most ground-breaking ideas in a series of short talks, and group discussion, to tell us what lies ahead. Their collective years of research and writing means we’ll all benefit from their educated insights into the future of our world.

Covering sustainability, terrorism, geopolitics, gender, religion, education and philosophy – what are the key issues and how can we prepare for the changes and challenges that lie ahead? Come with us as we aim beyond the regular predictions and leave you thinking differently about our shared future.

Our speakers will each deliver a short talk and then take part in a live Q&A discussion, hosted by Jamie Bartlett, author of Radicals and The People vs. Tech, tech blogger and Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media for cross-party think-tank Demos in conjunction with The University of Sussex.

Inside Bloomsbury Publishing Rights

Tuesday, February 12th | Inside Bloomsbury: Rights - Publishing's Best Kept Secret

Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we share the fascinating and largely unknown world of selling rights and how publishers work together internationally to create beautiful and bestselling books.

In a brand new event series, Inside Bloomsbury, we open up about how we create and publish our books by inviting key members of the Bloomsbury team to talk about what they do in more detail than ever before.

In this third event of the series – following sold-out events for illustrators and editors and proofreaders - we bring together two of our team members in Rights to talk about how they sell our biggest children's and adult titles across all continents and into the world of film, tv and media.

In any given year, Bloomsbury releases more than 2,500 new titles and we strive to see the majority published across the world to create truly global bestsellers. Our Foreign Rights team work tirelessly to ensure Bloomsbury titles are in-demand at book fairs in Frankfurt, London and Bologna as well as travelling all over the world to meet regularly with foreign editors and international colleagues. It's a mystery why Foreign Rights isn't the first choice for new starters in publishing because we believe it is definitely the most exciting!

We're delighted to have two of Bloomsbury's rights’ team; Maria Hammershoy and Josephine Blaquiere taking the time out of their busy schedules to give advice to publishing professionals, new and established, who want to know more about foreign rights. Their discussion will be chaired by Danuta Kean.

The Redemptive Power of Cooking with Ella Risbridger and Eva Wiseman

Tuesday, February 5th | The Redemptive Power of Cooking with Ella Risbridger and Eva Wiseman

We're thrilled to have acclaimed writer and poet Ella Risbridger with us to share her thoughts on the power of cooking to soothe and Midnight Chicken, her manifesto of recipes worth living for.

There was a time when, for Ella, the world had become overwhelming. Sounds were too loud, colours were too bright, everyone moved too fast. One night she found herself lying on her kitchen floor, wondering if she would ever get up – and it was the thought of a chicken, of roasting it, and of eating it, that got her to her feet and made her want to be alive. Her story is a joyful celebration of food and how it has the power to save your life. 

Midnight Chicken is more than a cookbook. It's Eat Pray Love meets Nigella’s How to Eat and we're absolutely delighted to have Ella talking live on the Bloomsbury Institute stage to columnist Eva Wiseman about the kind of cooking you can do a little bit drunk that is probably better if you’ve got a bottle of wine open and a hunk of bread to mop up the sauce.

Thursday, February 28th |  Around the World in 80 Trains with Monisha Rajesh

Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we take another witty and irreverent look at the world and celebrate the glory of train travel with acclaimed writer and intrepid adventurer Monisha Rajesh.

Acclaimed travel writer Monisha Rajesh discusses her wonderfully vivid account of her 45,000 mile journey circumnavigating the globe along the world's most remarkable railways with fellow travel writer Miranda France at Bloomsbury Publishing on Thursday, February 28th. Witty and irreverent, Around the World in 80 Trains celebrates the glory of train travel while aptly reflecting on what it means to be a global citizen. Part of our ongoing event series in partnership with the London Library.
“Monisha Rajesh has chosen one of the best ways of seeing the world. Never too fast, never too slow, her journey does what trains do best. Getting to the heart of things. Prepare for a very fine ride” – Michael Palin
