This talk has been postponed. Our Box Office will be in touch if you have already purchased tickets. Details of the new date will be announced soon.
Join Charles Boyle, Caroline Clark and Julian George, as they talk about their own books and the invaluable work of CB editions, a true London independent.
Founded by poet and writer Charles Boyle in 2007, CB Editions is now heading towards its 100th title. CB editions publishes short fiction, poetry, translations and other work which ‘might otherwise fall through the cracks between the big publishers’ (Guardian). CB titles have won prizes for fiction, poetry and translation, and have been shortlisted for many other awards. It is a one-person living room table operation.
Charles Boyle is joined by Caroline Clark and Julian George, the authors of new and recent books from CB editions, to discuss how experience can be brought to book in forms that refuse to be constrained by the traditional publishing categories and models of production.
Books will be available for purchase and signing.
Charles Boyle is the founder-editor of CB editions and has published poetry, fiction and non-fiction under his own name and two pen names. His most recent book is 99 Interruptions (2022), a cross-genre exploration of interruptions in both life and literature, and of the relationship between the two.
Caroline Clark lives in Lewes, Sussex, and works as a Russian translator and community interpreter. She has published a poetry collection, Saying Yes in Russian (Agenda Editions), and Sovetica (CB editions), a book of poem-stories accompanying photographs taken by her Russian husband in his home town of Zhukovsky in the 1980s. In her most recent book, Own Sweet Time: A Diagnosis and Notes (2022), fragmentary personal notes run alongside the transcript of a conversation with an oncologist.
Julian George is the author of Bebe (2023), a fantasia on the life of Bebe Rebozo, Cuban-American sidekick to President Nixon. His work has appeared in New World Writing, Ambit, The London Magazine, Film Comment, Cineaste, The Journal of Music and Art Review. Born in Tokyo, raised in the South, educated in New York, he lives in the Big Smoke, though his heart is in the Highlands.
