Tim Waterstone: The Face Pressed Against A Window

About

Tim Waterstone is a legendary figure among the book trade – from one small bookshop in 1982 his business philosophy has allowed Waterstone's to dominate the market today.

In his charming and evocative memoir, The Face Pressed Against a Window, he recalls the childhood experiences growing up in rural England at the end of the Second World War, including a troubled relationship with his father, and the epiphany he had whilst studying at Cambridge, that led him to become an entrepreneur.

Join us at The Old Court as he reveals the creative strategy which made him a high street name.

"[A] moving, funny take on business, family and mortality" - Jim Armitage, Evening Standard
