Our bookings: We feel very strongly that authors should be renumerated for their work so this year our speakers will receive the usual, though very modest, fee. Furthermore, when you book a ticket £5 will automatically go to the PD James Fund and be directed towards the student, and library, support vital in these difficult times.
