FBA authors at the Oxford Literary Festival
We’re very much looking forward to this year’s FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival, where several of our authors will be speaking. Events will take place in venues across the city from Saturday 17 to Sunday 25 March.
Journalist and writer David Pilling will be talking about his new book The Growth Delusion: Why Economists Are Getting It Wrong on Saturday 24 March. He argues that the economist’s cult of growth has hijacked policy-making and makes the case for a new way of measuring success.
On the same day, children’s author David Almond will be discussing The Tale of Angelino Brown, a warm and witty illustrated story created in collaboration with Claude creator Alex T Smith recently shortlisted for the prestigious CILIP Carnegie Medal.
