Thame Arts and Literature Festival 2013


18th - 20th October 2013


Thame is a beautiful market town set between London and Oxford in England.
It has a long and rich history and played an important part in the Civil War where the Parliamentarian General John Hampden died from his wounds.
This year's Thame Arts & Literature festival takes place in venues around the town from 18 - 20 October 2013. Talks, plays, music, and poetry; with over 30 main events crammed into three days, the choices include the first woman ever to ski across Antarctica solo, wax cylinder gramophones, John Masefield, an internationally acclaimed harpist,  Freedom from Torture, the winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Writing, the Ian English Boodlum Band and much more.

It is also exciting to be able to announce that the YA author CJ Daugherty will be appearing at the Thame Art & Literature Festival this weekend! It’s the first time that the festival has programmed a YA author which is awesome especially as CJ will be joined by Terri Terry author of Slated, so it’s a YA double bill! 
The YA authors Teri Terry and CJ Daugherty will be appearing in the Thame Library on Saturday 19th October 2013 at 11am
If you haven’t read Teri Terry’s amazing stories set in her dysfunctional world, you have missed a major treat. The gripping story of the sixteen year old heroine unravels into a totalitarian England where everything you thought you knew is completely off-kilter. Kyla's memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost forever. She's been Slated.




CJ Daugherty is the author of the Night School series, political thrillers set at a British boarding school that look at what would happen if the Bullingdon Club went very, very wrong.

Join these emerging voices in young adult fiction as they tackle government control, deception and trust in their visions of fractured futures.

This is a first ever event specialising in Young Adult Fiction from the Thame Art & Literature Festival.
