Over the years Slightly Foxed has come to seem more like a club of people who love books than just a magazine. This is always very noticeable at our annual Readers’ Day, a high point in the SF calendar, to which some of you come year after year to meet the staff and listen to some of our contributors speak about a wide range of bookish subjects.

2021’s Readers’ Day was held on Saturday 6 November at our usual London haunt, the Art Workers’ Guild in Queen Square, a short walk from Russell Square tube station. There was a reduced audience for this year’s event to allow for social distancing.

This year’s speakers were:

Biographer and historian Jane Ridley on her new biography, George V: Never a Dull Moment.

Diamond Dagger award-winning crime novelist Martin Edwards on the Golden Age of crime fiction. Martin will be interviewed by Ayo Onatade, Chair and Judge of the Historical Writers’ Association Debut Crown Award.

Jonathan Phillips on The Life and Legend of the Sultan Saladin, winner of the 2019 Slightly Foxed Best First Biography Prize.

Michael Palin on the contrast between his factual and fictional writing, comparing his novel Hemingway’s Chair with Erebus, his fascinating account of the great exploring ship.
