Literary evenings coming up - Garston Reads

This Autumn sees our first series of  literary evenings.  These are free events at Garston Library (we'll even give you a glass of wine).  It's a chance to hear from, and question, published writers and our third event also includes the chance to read some your own work.

We'll be publishing more details of each event as they get nearer, but for now here are the details.

Each event has a six pm start for refreshments and a six thirty start for the talks.  We'll be finished by eight.

Thursday 19th September - Martin Edwards is the author of two series of murder mysteries as well as some stand alone novels and short stories.  Martin will talk about his work and the art of crime writing.

Thursday 17th October - Local history author Mike Axworthy joins us to shed some light on how he writes and on the wealth of local history works about Garston and nearby.

Thursday 21st November - Members of the Dead Good Poets Society will read from published and unpublished work and there's a chance to read your own poetry to the audience.  We will need your work in advance - watch out for a future post on this.

These events are part funded by the Community First fund, which is government money allocated to projects in our area through the Community First scheme.
