Meet Alex Monroe at the 2014 Oxford Literary Festival
Friday 28th March, 12:00pm
Alex will be talking about writing his book, what inspires him and of course the jewellery
at the Oxford Literary Festival on Friday 28th March 2014
to celebrate the launch of his book 'Two Turtle Doves - A Memoir of Making Things'.
Meet Alex Monroe, get your book signed and chat to the man himself.
'Those expecting a polite, perhaps even genteel stroll through a high-end world of necklaces, earrings, lockets and so forth will be taken aback…. I imagine its being rediscovered with delight in some dusty bookcase a century hence and hailed as a classic.
Two Turtle Doves is a good deal more than a memoir. It is difficult to think of a text that better describes the way in which lived experience is translated by high craftsmanship into art.'
