Themed corners for eight books at Carmelite House cafe

Quercus hosted an evening for book reviewers, bloggers and instagrammers in the rooftop cafe at its Carmelite House office building. The publisher gave dedicated tables and displays to eight highlights from its spring 2019 list.

Beth O'Leary, the Penguin Random House Children's editor whose debut novel The Flatshare went to Quercus in a six-figure deal, got her own themed bed (right). The guests also met Sonia Velton, author of Blackberry and Wild Rose.

Publicity director Hannah Robinson said: "We hope that our guests enjoyed the innovative interactive element of the evening and being able to select which proofs they took home. We've seen some beautiful photographs from the event on social media and hope to do something similar again soon."
