Oak Tree Fine Press

Doris Lessing’s Nobel Lecture is being printed for the first time in a signed letter press limited edition available for Christmas this year.

It will be available from December 5th. The lecture, On Not Winning the Nobel Prize, was presented by Doris Lessing to the Swedish Academy following their decision to award her the Nobel Prize for Literature.

All profits from book sales go to support children living with HIV and AIDS. The lecture offers a fascinating journey through the thoughts of this inspirational and pioneering writer. A deeply moving study of the essential and permanent importance of books and literature, it combines vivid personal recollections with an exploration of key challenges faced by contemporary society, such as poverty, inequality and a fragmenting culture.

Oak Tree Fine Press was established through the support of Nobel Laureate J. M. Coetzee to raise money to help care for some of the more than 2,000 children around the world who become HIV-positive every day of the year.
Staffed mainly by volunteers, it produces one-off signed editions by world leading authors, accompanied by sensitive artistic interpretations.
All profits go to selected charities.
