A Very Happy New Year Full of Books

January 2, 2018

It has only just started but 2018 promises to be a very special year. We’re delighted to welcome three new titles in the spring:

The White Crucifixion

The White Crucifixion, a novel about Marc Chagall, by Michael Dean which will be launched on Saturday 24 February 2018 from 4 to 6 pm in the Gradidge Room, the Artworkers Guild, 6 Queen Square, WC1N 3AT

Stone Bread Salt

Stone. Bread. Salt., a new poetry collection building on from To Sing Away the Darkest Days, by Norbert Hirschhorn which will be launched on Sunday 29 April, from 4 to 6 pm in the Resource Room, JW3, 341-351 Finchley Road, London NW3 6ET

Karen Jennings

Space Inhabited by Echoes, a first poetry collection by Etisalat Literature Prize shortlisted Karen Jennings, which is inspired by her move from South Africa to Brazil, and which will be published on 17 May.

The first chance to see some of our authors in action in 2018 is on Wednesday 10 January when Norbert Hirschhorn and Arnold Jansen op de Haar will be joined by TS Eliot shortlisted Jacqueline Saphra to read poems about migration and discuss how migration has influenced their work.

After our successful run of Christmas Market at the end of 2017, we’re planning more outings of our bookstall, so watch this space for more information, because soon we may well be at a market near you.

Another exciting fact is that my beloved eight-month-old Labrador puppy Harry is growing into a genuine publisher’s dog. How so, you may ask, well he loves to doze among the books (and not eat them) while I am beavering away at my desk.

New Year Fireworks

All the best wishes for 2018 from all of use at Holland Park Press and we look for ward to welcoming you (back) on our website and at our events. Of course, you will really make our year by buying more of our books.
