Nobel Prize winner booked for festival

Nobel Prize winner booked for festival

NOBEL laureate Kazuo Ishiguro is among the big name authors appearing at this year’s Oxford Literary Festival, which opens next Saturday (March 30) and runs until Sunday, April 7.

The author, who won the Booker Prize for 1989’s The Remains of the Day and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2017, will be rubbing shoulders at the festival with the likes of Jo Brand, who will be talking about Born Lippy, her darkly funny guide to life as a woman.

Meanwhile, historian Lucy Worsley will be discussing her Tudor novels for children, and the environmentalist and journalist George Monbiot, who grew up in Henley, will tackle the devastation of the natural world and the Oxford-Cambridge conurbation. Other authors lined up to appear include thriller writer Robert Harris, former Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger, prima ballerina turned Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell, and the explorer Ranulph Fiennes.
