oxford literary festival

Oops, can't believe I didn't post this earlier! Anyone who can possibly make it to Oxford, come see my lovely publisher David Fickling, the Etherington brothers and John Aggs talk about our fabulous weekly comic, the DFC! It's all happening on Saturday, 4 April at noon.

Here are booking details!

I notice there are a few other good festival things happening that day, including the Inspector Morse walking tour, a talk by writer Michael Morpurgo (the one whose party I went to at the Savoy), and Aliens Love Underpants creator Ben Cort. (Ben is lovely, the last two times I've met him we've geeked out over how to get the right colours on our computers in CMYK. I vow not to mention CMYK next time I see him.) Sadly, Emma Chichester Clark is speaking at the same time as us, but my tummy is already working itself into excited, nervous knots about the chance to meet Bob the Builder before our talk. What will I say to him? I must think of something very witty that will make me stand out from all the other diggers.

That is a silly bit of age ranging, it's for everyone who likes comics! Except Bob Etherington at the pub afterwards is not for kiddies.

Also, the following day there's a talk by the wonderful and fab Ben Goldacre (learned and handsome young crusader for the triumph of good science over media misrepresentation and quackery of all sorts.)

And, on a personal note, my brother's best pal Robin Bennett is doing a songwriting workshop with Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley fame) from 6-8pm in the Music Room, on April 4th.

Oh, and here's what you say to Bob the Builder -- "Can you recommend someone who does tiles? I need someone to redo my whole bathroom while I'm out of town next weekend. Here's my card. Give me a call if you think of anyone."

On further inspection, this would appear to be a different Jenny Lewis. I'm pretty sure the singer from Rilo Kiley does not teach poetry at Oxford University.

Now JERRY Lewis...THAT would've been cool.
