THIS is, I hope, a live link to the website of the Oxford Literary Festival, which is full of good things, this year as every year. The reason I'm highlighting it on ABBA is twofold. Firstly, Nicolette Jones has assembled a star cast of children's authors who will be appearing in events throughout the week March 20th- 28th and secondly, she's organized a day of events on Saturday March 27th featuring writers who have connections with St. Hilda's College. Among other things, you'll find PD James on Barbara Pym, an event about women in the media and a panel (Victoria Hislop, Anita Mason and me) discussing the Family and History in Fiction.
Do have a look at the website and please pass on the link to anyone you think would be interested.
