October is shaping up to be a busy month in the PP calendar, with publication dates for our artists, FOUR new artists going the PP family, and some exciting workshops, readings and events such as Book Shop Day. We thought we'd gather all you need to know in one place so you don't miss out on anything - diaries at the ready!

Over the past month we have signed four AMAZING new artists and we're so happy to have them with us at PP. Their folios are all live on the website now so go and have a look around! We will also be posting interviews with all four of them - you can find Jo's below this post if you have 5 minutes!
Author, illustrator and paper engineer Jonny Lambert is running a workshop at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on Saturday 15th October. He will be talking about the inspiration behind his latest book The Great Aaa-Ooo, how he creates his amazing animals and giving a sneak peek of his next title Tiger Tiger. Tickets are available here!
The Booksellers Association is holding the first Bookshop Day for the UK and Ireland on Saturday 8th October and it will also continue its Books Are My Bag campaign, now in its fourth year. They are encouraging bookshops to host special parties, signings and events to celebrate the day! So look out for events in bookshops near you on the 8th!
Lots of things to look forward to and to celebrate, here's to a marvellous month!!
