Oxford Literary Festival Main Tent

Literary Festival - main tent

This week, as regular readers will know is Lit. Fest. Week. So far, I have been to a talk by Tottenham MP David Lammy about the decline of social mobility and some of the problems underlying last year’s riots and a talk about Rosalind Franklin by her sister, Jenifer Glynn.

Today is God, Mammon and Biotechnology (which just about covers everything).

Friday is Chocolate with students (pupils) from a local school. Does anybody know what Year 6 and Year 7 are in old money?

Saturday is Socrates and Hemlock (!).
