The 27th Annual International conference on Virginia Woolf, ‘Virginia Woolf and the World of Books’, is being held at the University of Reading, 29 June – 2 July 2017.

2017 marks the centenary of the founding of the Hogarth Press. The conference aims to celebrate Leonard and Virginia Woolf’s Hogarth Press as a key intervention in modernist and women’s writing and to mark its importance to independent publishing and bookselling.
