Literary Lunch with Toby Faber
Location: Christopher Wren Dining Room, Ye Olde Watling Pub, 29 Watling Road, London EC4M 9BR
Join us for our next Literary Lunch at the historic Ye Olde Watling pub where we will hear from author and non-executive director of Faber & Faber, Toby Faber.
Toby Faber was a banker and management consultant before spending four years as managing director of the company founded by his grandfather, Faber and Faber. He remains on its Board and is Chairman of its sister company, Faber Music, an Arts Society lecturer, and a director of Liverpool University Press. He has also been a Trustee of Yale University Press (London), Vice Chairman of the Authors Licensing and Collecting Society, a director of The Copyright Licensing Agency and Chairman of The Book Society.
Toby has written three works of narrative non-fiction - Stradivarius (2004), Faberge's Eggs (2008) and Faber & Faber: The Untold Story (2019) - and one novel, Close to the Edge (2019). Only one of those books (the obvious one) was published by Faber.
The cost of this lunchtime event, which starts at 1.00pm, is just £32.50 and includes a traditional two-course lunch, as well as the after-lunch interview with Toby Faber and Michael Binyon OBE. We are restricted to 35 attendees, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Books will also be available to preorder and get signed on the day!
