QueenSpark, Brighton & Hove’s very own community publishing venture, has a new patron in the shape of Dr Margaretta Jolly.

Dr Jolly, a Reader in Cultural Studies at Sussex University, has been a fan of QueenSpark Books since she came across them in the 1990s, and has been involved with them in her other job as Director of the Centre for Life History and Life Writing Research for 15 years.

“We’re delighted that Margaretta has agreed to become one of our patrons,” says QueenSpark Development Director John Riches. “Her deep knowledge and expertise in the field of writing and oral history, and her support for our publications and work, will be immensely valuable to us.”

QueenSpark books are the oldest community-run book publisher in this country having celebrated their 40th birthday last year. This year they plan a new departure when they bring out a new graphic novel in October.
