Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

Carcanet and Covid-19

No Text  

Carcanet Press’s Manchester office remains open for the present, with a skeleton staff; but most staff, for their safety, are working remotely as we are keen to avoid contributing to the spread of the virus.

Most of the live events and conferences we were arranging or collaborating with are being postponed. Decisions currently affect events through May. We will keep you informed via our e-letter and social media for further updates.

Some publication dates may be moved. We are reluctant to delay books but given how the situation is affecting the book trade it may soon be necessary to consider doing so for the sake of authors, readers and the trade itself. We are very concerned for bookshops where footfall is already much reduced. We are looking for ways to collaborate with them. While Carcanet’s own on-line bookstore remains in business, we urge all our readers to source books from the bricks and mortar bookshops, using their mail-order services and supporting them wherever possible. Most of our books can be bought as e-books from all the major suppliers.

Carcanet’s social media will continue to inform and entertain.

PN Review is on course and issue 253 is currently ‘in the works’.

Stay in touch with us… And stay well!
