Wonderful session with @kateisdrawing at #oxfordliteraryfestival today - a brilliant interactive session for the children which both my daughter and I absolutely loved! *

Oxford Brookes is a partner at this year's prestigious Oxford Literary Festival. Students are getting an amazing experience to interact with world leading figures from food and hospitality.

Full house for the brilliant James Attlee at #OxfordLitFest discussing the cultural significance of #Guernica. #OxfordLiteraryFestival #Picasso #Art #ArtHistory #Landmark #CulturalLandmark #LandmarkLibrary #literature #history

Became all #fanboy on encountering @PhilipPullman talk live at the #oxfordlitfest - just an appropriate amount of course. I asked him about the contemporary physics that’s in a lot of his world building. I wonder if he’d like my use of Milton in #thedialoguesbook when discussing contemporary physics...?

We had a sneak peak of this year's Library exhibition for the Oxford Literary Festival. Difficult to narrow it down to just a few photos and impossible to miss out the staircase!

Judith Kerr protecting her drink from any passing tiger who, having drunk all the water from the tap, may still be thirsty...and from Nicolette Jones who was eyeing it. #OxfordLitFest @oxfordlitfestya #childrensillustrators #childrensauthors #childrensbooks #ChildrensBooks #Booktrust #BooktrustLifetimeAchievementAward #TheTigerWhoCameToTea #tigers

I escaped this afternoon to the #oxfordlitfest to listen to acclaimed author #SuTong reliving the highs and lows of his writing career. Apparently, he wasn’t too impressed with the adaption of #RaiseTheRedLantern which was nominated for an Oscar 👏 Now off to a ‘banquet’ to celebrate Tong’s literary achievements! It’s hosted by colleagues at @oxfordbrookes and its #oxfordcentreofinternationalpublishing #ocip #confuciousInstitute

RepostBy @chinaexchangeuk: "Today we're reading #SuTong #苏童's political fable #TheBoattoRedemption #河岸. Described as "a picturesque novel of immense charm", it won Su Tong the Man Asia literary prize in 2009. Add it to your reading list & meet the author in person at our #ChinaInContextFest on 17 Mar. #chineseliterature #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookaddict #bookaholic #booklover #booksandtea #talk #chinaexchangeuk #chinaexchange #londonchinatown #CypressBooksUK @uktealife"

Ran into fellow Moomin fan, Samuel West, in the green room at the @oxfordlitfestya. (He read out an extract of my THE WORLD OF MOOMINVALLEY at its launch at the Finnish ambassador's London residence last year.) Here, he'd been reading poems from A POEM FOR EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR - an anthology I'm proud to have a poem in. @macmillankidsuk @panmacmillan @peaplanter #Moomins #poetry #poems #poets #childrenspoetry #childrenspoets #oxfordlitfest

I’m so excited to be in Oxford on the 19th March to speak at the Literary Festival. I’ll be joining @sabrinaghayour and @jose_pizarro to talk about food and how it can define a sense of place. And signing a few early copies of my book! Would love for you to come along... You can buy tickets through the link in my profile... so hope to see you there! #oxfordlitfest

LATEST BLOG POST: 🍴Why your lunch is be more political than you might think. 🍽Link in biog. 🍴No veg growing this week. Or not directly anyway. Just thoughts today. Quite political ones (don’t say I didn’t warn you). But then growing food is, I’m starting to realise, quite a political act. And that’s sort of my point really. But I’m getting ahead of myself. It all started at a talk by Nigella Lawson and Anna del Conte...
