Lennie Goodings & Linda Grant
Books, Writers and Virago

Lennie Goodings (A Bite of the Apple) has published some of the greatest writers of the past few decades – Sarah Waters, Marilynne Robinson, Margaret Atwood and Maya Angelou among them, and now writes her own memoir – about Virago. As a very early member of the publisher, she has continued to help lead the way for women writers in the UK, and we’re delighted that she is joined by one of her authors, Linda Grant (A Stranger City), who has been published by Virago for eighteen of her bestselling and award-winning writing years. A wonderful opportunity to see how a successful writer and publisher relationship can lead to magnificent books.
