LX 2009 Programme Schedule

Heavily constrained by need to support bookstall and still-small child, but in there...

This one is the socratic enquiry:

Entry-level criticism	
Sat	11:00	
"Science fiction has a long tradition of criticisms, from academics
and critics through to the fan who reviews on their blog. But how do
you learn to be a better critic? Can you learn to write about books?"
Caroline Mullan (moderator)
Chris Hill
Paul Skevington
Jon Courtenay Grimwood
Paul F Cockburn

And this is the conversation:

New SF for Old	
Sat	20:00	
"We asked 3 older and 3 younger readers to recommend a book from their
era, and now they've read them all it's time to discuss what they
thought."
Claire Brialey (moderator)
Liz Batty
Ang Rosin
Ian Taylor
Caroline Mullan
Martin Easterbrook
Yvonne Rowse

Ooh, sounds interesting.

Are you still going to be vaguely in the West Midlands during the next few days, and would you like to meet up for dinner with Abi and me if so?

Yes we'd love to meet for dinner if still feasible - we're at Hewenden Mill Cottages, BD13 5BP, Cullingworth. We'll be knackered on Monday night and we're spending Wednesday in York. Which leaves Tuesday night. Do you have my email address so we can discuss off-line?

I can't find a polite way to put this, but in that second one, the younger ones don't actually seem all that, well, young...?

I was thinking the same thing :-) I can't put names to faces for some of them but apart from Liz I'm having trouble working out which is which [blush] Where's Flick and John and, er, me? [grin]

Please come and kibbitz from the audience. And try and read as many of the books as possible first.

You may have a point, but address it to Claire...I'm just on the panel. I know the programming team had the usual trouble getting people with time and inclination to read 6 books for a panel.

...the response to Alison is that I meant to change that description and it must've slipped through, because it is intended to be people who read mostly older books versus people who read mostly newer books, and not a young vs old split, which is why there is a range of ages and not specifically young people.
