So Philip Pullman will be at two events in Oxford in the next few days to promote Lyra’s Oxford. The first one is a signing at Waterstones on Saturday, conveniently at the same time I’m going to be in Cambridge. But no fear – the second one will be a presentation organised by Borders at the Natural History Museum (in Oxford) on Tuesday evening – which, unsurprisingly, is the same time as my Provost’s Dinner at college.
Typical. I guess I’ll just have to wait until The Book of Dust comes out.
