2012 Award Ceremony date and venue

4 Oct

We’re delighted to announce that the winner of the first Bread and Roses Award will be announced on May 1st 2012, with the award being presented at Clapham’s Bread and Roses pub – an ideal venue, not just because of the shared name, but because of the pub’s connection with the Workers Beer Company and the Battersea and Wandsworth Trades Union Council, which founded the pub.

Launching the Bread and Roses Award

13 Sep

The national launch of the Bread and Roses Award will be a featured event at the Alliance of Radical Booksellers Symposium, which takes place at The Bluecoat in Liverpool on Thursday 13 October 2011 as part of their Chapter and Verse literature festival.

The Bread and Roses Award will be launched at 2pm.

The Symposium provides a forum for debate about the past, present & future of the radical book-trade. News from Nowhere & other radical bookshops from around the country – some old, some new – will guide us through the ups & downs, and future prospects of the trade. Free, but tickets are required – contact The Bluecoat.
