Event details

What is art all about?

How should we talk about art?

What kind of questions should we ask when looking at it?

Join children’s author Alice Harman as she explores all of these questions and more, all while taking you on a journey through the Louvre Museum and its many masterpieces, including the Mona Lisa.

Book sales

You can buy copies of many of our speakers’ books from Fox Lane Books, a local independent bookseller and Festival partner. In some cases, author signed bookplates are available too.
