It seems an absolute age since the classics conference in Oxford but when I think about it I still get a warm glow. It was a terrific weekend and I met some really great people. It was lovely for me to see The Works so well received. I’ve been asked to address the Classical Association next April at Newcastle University, so I look forward to that, also I believe that Professor Lorna Hardwick of Open University wants to interview me and record me reading extracts from The Works.
I borrowed a digital camera and took some photos (I think), but of course I didn’t have a cable to get them up onto my blog and I’ve returned the camera – still you never know, some pickies might still turn up some time.
Have just come back from reading at The Bridge in Newcastle and Colpitts in Durham. Colpitts was a small but very appreciative audience (wonder anyone was there at all given that it was raining cats and dogs!). I was supposed to be having a lighter schedule during October and November, but there’s no sign of it yet! Also, my biggest problem – I’ve changed my computer and this new, faster, improved operating system is giving me problems with my poor old dial-up email system – Think I might go back to writing letters.
