My department head had previously attended one of the Oxbridge Programs called "The Library and the Academy" and loved it! When I saw there was a fantasy literature program, I knew I had to apply. A whole week talking about fantasy literature? It's like a dream come true!
This is our reading list:
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- Through the Looking-Glass By Lewis Carroll
- The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
- The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
- The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
- His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
- Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
- Bloodtide by Melvin Burgess
I hope to be able to post as I'm at the seminar, to keep you updated on all the fabulous. But it involves borrowing a netbook, which I am in the process of figuring out. Stay tuned!
