Regular readers of this blog may be aware of my participation in The Stationers’ Company, the City of London’s livery company – or guild – for the publishing and media industries. For myself and the other US-based members of The Stationers’ Company, the inability for us to travel to London for Company events has been disappointing. Nonetheless, the Company has invested a great deal of energy and no shortage of resources in keeping programming viable via Zoom. Frequent webinars and presentations about the state of the industry, new projects that members are working on, as well as the odd night or two of virtual pub trivia have kept us connected with our friends and colleagues in the UK.
Recently, I had the great privilege of participating in an interview hosted by the Master of the Company, the Right Reverend Stephen Platten. Platten was educated at The Stationers’ Company School, a since-closed school that had been run by The Stationers’ Company. He went on to serve in the clergy, including a role as the last Bishop of Wakefield for the Anglican Church. In his retirement, he has been increasingly active in the Company, leading the Company through the expansion and upgrade of the historic Stationers’ Hall in Central London. You can see our discussion in the YouTube link below.
