Short Stories Aloud: Elise Valmorbida and Jacqueline O'Mahony
This is one of my favourite regular literary events in Oxford! We gather downstairs at Blackwells and listen to actors perform short stories by two authors. After a short break, the authors answer the questions from the audience scribbled on paper notes. The event is hosted by an author Sarah Franklin.
This time we listened to writers Elise Valmorbida talking about her latest book The Madonna of the Mountains and Jacqueline O'Mahony talking about her book A River in the Trees.
Shame on me cause I did not find out the actors' names... maybe next time!
Did I mention that you get cake during the break?
