Britain’s most well-known classicist, Mary Beard, will be delivering this year’s Bodley Lecture. She will be speaking to the Bodley’s Librarian Richard Ovenden about her life and work, focusing on the public statements that have often seen her at the centre of controversy. Following the event, Mary will receive the Bodley Medal for outstanding contribution to the worlds of literature, arts, science, and communication. Don’t miss your chance to join literary walks, lunches, and dinner with some of the greatest names in literature.
