Hosted by the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing, Arizona State University

To honour the exceptional contribution of the USA to world literature and culture, the festival’s opening dinner brings together the distinguished novelists, writers and public figures from America who are speaking in Oxford over the first weekend.

The founding partners of the programme are the Bodleian Libraries; Arizona State University and The Rothermere American Institute of the University of Oxford.

The dinner is staged in the beautiful 15th-century Divinity School built for the teaching of theology. With its elaborate vaulted ceiling and 455 carved stone bosses, it is a masterpiece of English Gothic Architecture.
