About Book

Join us at 6.30pm at the Faber offices on Thursday 17th September for a very special evening as we invite Faber Members to explore our famous archives.

At this unique event you’ll have the opportunity to gather around Geoffrey Faber’s editorial table as Faber’s archivist Robert Brown takes you on a tour of our 85-year history and unveils hidden documents from our vaults. Read book reports by T. S. Eliot and look at intimate letters from some of poetry’s all time greats, such as Ted Hughes and Seamus Heaney. Then enjoy an exclusive reading from poet, Jack Underwood as he reads some of his favourite Faber poems as well as poems from his latest collection, Happiness.

The event is limited to six Faber Members, and each attendee will receive a copy of Happiness signed by the author on the day and a tote bag full of Faber goodies.

About the Faber Archive

Created in 1975 to mark the 50th anniversary of Faber and Faber, our archive is an extraordinary treasure trove, overflowing with riches from some of the world’s most important literary titans, including T. S. Eliot, Ted Hughes and Kazuo Ishiguro. Robert Brown took over as Faber Archivist in 2007 and he’s been unearthing, as well as keeping in order, literary correspondence of the highest quality ever since.

Hidden under lock and key, and never open to the public, this is a rare opportunity to see some unique and fascinating historical documents from Faber’s long and venerated publishing past, as well as enjoy an intimate poetry reading with one of our brightest stars, Jack Underwood.
