Focal are hosting Sylvia Vetta for their next event in the ‘Meet the Author’ series which will be held in the library at 4.30 pm. Sylvia Vetta has written for the Oxford Times and its monthly magazine, Oxford Limited Edition, every month since 1998.
Her ‘Castaway’ series features interviews which include Shami Chakrabarti, Colin Dexter, Roger Bannister, Brian Aldiss and Sister Frances Domenica. The series of anthologies culminates with fifty of her interviewees being brought together in a book ‘Oxford Castaways’, illustrated by Weimin He.
Sylvia Vetta has written prolifically about art, antiques and history. She has recently finished two novels, one set in Oxford and India and the other, an historical novel, inspired by The Stars Art Movement (China 1979).
Tickets £8.00 per head to include a glass of wine or soft drink; accompanied children are admitted free. There will be a book signing after the talk. Tickets from the library or by e-mail from Keith Mitchell
