Nikesh Shukla will be in conversation with four leading Hachette Non-Fiction editors – Briony Gowlett, Andrew James, Sharmaine Lovegrove and Shoaib Rokadiya the stunning Hachette rooftop.

Topics that will be covered in panel discussion and Q&A to include:

  • An overview of the Non-Fiction editor’s role and how they work with writers
