The Joy of Writing, Reading and Cartwheels12:00pm | Sunday 1 April 2012
|£N/A||1 Hour||Christ Church: Festival Room 2|
Katherine Rundell is the author of The Girl Savage and the youngest fellow at All Soul’s College, Oxford. Come along and hear her talk about how books are made, from first sitting down with a head full of ideas to the fantastic fun of writing blurbs. She will discuss why poetry is better than coffee, where ideas might come from – her best ones happen when she is doing handstands against the wall – and why she begins each day with a cartwheel. Because, in fact, reading is almost exactly the same as cartwheeling: it turns the world upside down, and leaves you breathless.
