For over fifty years the Publishers Publicity Circle has enabled all book publicists from publishing houses and freelance pr agencies to gather and share information on a regular basis.

Monthly meetings are held in central London to provide a forum for press journalists, television and radio researchers and producers to meet publicists collectively. Representatives from the media are invited to speak about the ways in which they can feature authors and their books, and how book publicists can most effectively provide relevant information and material.
