Margaret Atwood, acclaimed Canadian writer and former Booker Prize winner, is to visit Oxford this week to promote her new novel, Oryx and Crake. The event is the first in a long series of events to mark the publication of her first novel since 2001. She will be discussing her work with Peter Kemp, fiction editor of the Sunday Times, as part of the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival on May 21st in the Sheldonian Theatre. This, as the final event in the Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival, is likely to strengthen Oxford?s bid for capital of culture.
