October Books took part as a venue in the first edition of the So: To Speak Festival, with children’s author Sandra Horn reading stories to an enraptured young audience, and Professor of Philosophy and celebrated author Ray Monk discussing the intellectual challenge of writing a biology, with reference to his own work on Wittgenstein and Oppenheimer.

We at October Books are delighted that So: To Speak have taken the initiative at celebrating Southampton as the home of writers and poets and a strong Spoken Word scene, and we are looking forward to the next edition!
