A celebration of Patrick Leigh Fermor by Colin Thubron and Artemis Cooper

There are many events planned to celebrate the publication of Patrick Leigh Fermor: An Adventure by Artemis Cooper, but perhaps the one I am most looking forward to is this one held on 24 October 2012.

Artemis Cooper talks to Colin Thubron about their mutual friend at the Royal Geographic Society. This is a joint event with the Royal Society of Literature. There are membership discounts and RLS members should book through the Royal Society of Literature at http://www.rslit.org

Booking details for the Royal Geographic Society can be found here.

The event is sponsored by Art Tours Ltd who specialise in bespoke cultural travel for private clients. They also organise trips for museum patron groups, academic bodies and specialist clubs and societies. Art Tours’ aim is to bring painting, sculpture and architecture to life, using experts of the highest quality, while ensuring that their clients experience seamless luxury travel. The focus is on visits to private collections and behind the scenes access to public museums and historic sites. Visit the Art Tours website here http://www.arttoursltd.com/
