We are delighted to have partnered with Culture24 to broker appearances by leading writers to talk about their work at prominent cultural venues, as part of the 2013 Museums at Night Festival (16-18 May). Museums at Night is the annual after-hours celebration of arts, culture and heritage - when hundreds of museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites open their doors for special events.
Sandeep Mahal, who leads on our partnership work with publishers and libraries, says: "Building on the success of our 2012 partnership, we are delighted to be working again with the team behind the Museums at Night festival to bring a bigger and better line-up of author events this year. Through our unique brokering role, we've encouraged publishers to work with the festival to feature a fantastic mix of author events, including children's, and there's such a great variety of things to do."
