Join Pip Williams as she introduces The Bookbinder of Jericho, the follow-up to her internationally bestselling The Dictionary of Lost Words.
Fusing her talent for historical research and lyrical storytelling, she tells the tale of a young woman who works in the bindery of Oxford University press during the outbreak of World War I. Williams speaks with Ailsa Piper about a richly rendered exploration of knowledge — who gets to make it, who has to access it, and what is lost when it is withheld.
