As well as launching our books in bookshops, we often sell Handheld Press books at book fairs, conventions, conferences and AGMs, depending on the subject.
If you’d like to book a Zoom talk (no fee), email us.
Kate also gives talks about publishing and design to large and small groups, and runs workshops on how publishing works for aspiring authors (and publishers).
Have you discovered the Handheld Book Club?
It’s our online monthly salon where we talk books with special guests.
You can find out more and book your tickets here.
Valentine Ackland at the Bristol Festival of Ideas
Frances Bingham will be talking about her new biography, Valentine Ackland. A Transgressive Life, at the Bristol Festival of Ideas on publication day, Thursday 20 May, at 18h. You can secure your tickets for this online event here.
Sponsor Handheld Press to raise money for homelessness support!
Kate will be leading Team Handheld on a 20-mile circuit walk around Bath on 25 April, as part of a fundraising effort for Julian House, the leading charity in Bath and south-west England supporting and empowering socially excluded people to build sustainable and meaningful lives. For every pound you donate, a subliminal layer of cushioning will be added to Kate’s boots: a scientifically tested fact. Visit the JustGiving page to donate. Every little really does help!
Talks for Westminster Libraries
Kate will be presenting four online talks on publishing and forgotten stories for Westminster City Council libraries, in June, July, September and October 2021. Details coming soon!
Due to the public health emergency most of our planned outings and events have been cancelled.
When firm plans have been made we will put the details here.
We are continually in talks to create more book stalls, events and talks: do revisit this page to see what has been arranged, or sign up to our monthly Newsletter.
