Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming up on Vulpes Libris

It’s another diverse but exciting week on Vulpes Libris, as the Foxes get in about Great Historical Events, the messy and complex business of neurosurgery, and the writing life: toil, impatience, triumph. No matter the weather (and I don’t know how it is with you, but in my neck of the German woods it’s bloody appalling), we’ve got something to keep you entertained.

On Monday, Jackie ponders the Gettysburg Address a hundred and fifty-one years later.

On Wednesday, Kirsty M talks to multi-talented novelist and writing teacher (and Richard and Judy summer pick) Julie Cohen.

On Friday, Kirsty D is unexpectedly captivated by real life tales of neurosurgery.

And on Saturday, Eve enthuses greatly about her latest favourite kids book.

    Oh my, what an ominous vista. But I bet those clouds were fun to paint.
