Cumnor author Philip Pullman will be talking about his books at Woodstock's literary festival at 4pm on Saturday (October 13), at the Marlborough Enterprise Centre, in Hensington Road.

Mr Pullman wrote the His Dark Materials trilogy. The first novel in the series, Northern Lights, is being made into a Hollywood movie, The Golden Compass, starring James Bond actor Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman.

Key scenes of the film were shot in Oxford earlier this year.
