(We have a Facebook page now – do come and “like” us and say hi)We are delighted to announce a fantastic event on August 10th, at our spiritual home, the Albion Beatnik Bookstore on Walton Street, Oxford (opposite the Big Bang). Sign up on Facebook here.
What do we think of when we think of Oxford? Inspector Morse? Mortar boards and gowns? Tolkien and cronies? Those imposing dreaming spires? Maybe even Radiohead? If that’s the pus from a very shallow superficial scratch at the city’s surface, Nightmaring Spires will take you on a veritable laparascopic odyssey into its rotting cadaver. With readings about Oxford, and by those who live here, get to know this famous city a little better.
