lennie goodings

Tuesday 23 May, 2023, 7.45 p.m. – 8.45 p.m.

Lennie Goodings joined Virago in the 1978 when “women wanted a voice, women wanted to understand their history, women wanted to see themselves on the page.” As an editor, she has worked with many of the finest writers of the last half-century, including Angela Carter, Maya Angelou, Marilynne Robinson, and Margaret Atwood and has won multiple awards for her pioneering work in publishing. Her memoir A Bite of the Apple offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the workings of a publishing house and explores the idea of idealistic publishing along with commercial considerations.
