April 4th – 6-8 pm Albion Beatnik Bookstore (Walton St, opposite The Big Bang)
Forget paying sky high prices at the Oxford Literary Festival to see the same people say the same things they have and will at dozens of other faceless events across the country. Oxford has more than just hundreds of years of heritage, it is a city full of vibrant, exciting contemporary literature, the kind of culture squeezed from generic festivals.
Come to the city’s most exciting bookstore, dedicated to the beat, to travel, music, cutting edge literature , and poetry, and see some of the very best writers, spoken word performers, and music you’ll find today, for FREE.
