Do pop over to OUPblog, where I’ve currently got a post up about the Oxford Literary Festival, and a series of talks that I organize over there every year for work.
Every year we hold a series of “soap box” talks for the Very Short Introductions at the Oxford Literary Festival. It’s like Speakers’ Corner; authors from the series get on their soap box and talk for 10 minutes about their subject, hopefully attracting a small crowd and a few questions afterwards (and some book sales!). We’ve got 12 different VSI authors at the festival this year, and today I thought I’d bring you some photos.
The Oxford Literary Festival 2009 runs from Sunday 29 March until Sunday 5 April at Christ Church.
