Which is the smallest book in the Bodleian Library? Who complained when their secret pen name was revealed in the library’s catalogue? How many miles of shelving are there in the Book Storage Facility? What is the story behind the library’s refusal to lend a book to King Charles I? And, what is the phi collection?

The answers to these questions and many more will be revealed by writer Claire Cock-Starkey as she discusses the many fascinating facts, quirks of fate and eccentric characters that she uncovered as she looked behind-the-scenes at Oxford’s world renowned Bodleian Library, for her book Bodleianalia.
