A Literary and Historical Tour of Oxford by Writer/Artist Jennifer Anne Moses

nytlogo379x64 (1)Last year, Great Books launched their first program outside of the US on the campus of Oxford. After a wildly successful start, Great Books is going back to Oxford again this year. Whether you are going this year or have plans for attending in the future, here is a wonderful literary and cinematic tour of Oxford that Jennifer Anne Moses, author of Tales from My Closet, wrote for The New York Times.

In the piece, Moses shares some great history of the place, tips for good, cheap eats along the way, and advice for proper footwear.  She also references the number of films and books that tie to the place, which might be fun to brush up on before your departure.

If you went to Oxford last year, what was your favorite activity and what books did you read or movies did you watch to prepare for the trip?
