What Katy Did: Book Launch

Over the past year I've been working on a very special book project: along with my colleague Hilary Emmett, students from our final year module on nineteenth century children's literature, designer Emily Benton, and UEA's Boiler House Press we've been busy producing a new edition of Susan Coolidge's beloved book for children, What Katy Did. 2022 is its 150th anniversary, so this is timely on a number of levels! Working collaboratively on this new critical edition - the first of its kind - has been a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to talking more about the genesis and development of the project at our book launch on November 30th at 5pm. You can register for the event, for free, here. And you pre-order your copy here (or here on amazon).

In the meantime, the folks at Boiler House Press have been producing some nice promo material in advance of the book's release, which I'll gather here:

This book is also part of Boiler House Press's new Recovered series, dedicated to bringing forgotten books back to life (as featured in the Bookseller, here). The other book that's helping to launch the series is Gentleman Overboard, and it's being launched on December 2nd. Book here!
