Poets Corner

Last month (November) the Friends of Garston Library were joined by poets from the Dead Good Poets Society for our third literary evening.

We heard readings by published poets which made the audience laugh and cry.

We also heard from local people who shared their own work.

Clearly there's a lot of demand for poetry evenings so we're thinking of holding another one next year.

Bill Cooke, a committee member of the Friends read one of his poems as well as chairing the  event.

Big thanks to the poets who joined us and to everyone for their enthusiasm.

We want to hear your ideas about events for the future, so if you want more poetry, or have other ideas , please let us know.

Our General Meeting is on 23rd January at 7pm at ESLA on Horrocks Avenue.  But if you can't join us then, drop Paula an e mail with your thoughts.  She is at

Our General Meeting

We're holding a General Meeting next month (January) so that people can have a chance to give their views about what we should be doing.

It's at ESLA on 23rd January at 7pm.

Do come along and have your say.  Obviously we have already organised some events and are working on more but we are keen to get feedback and ideas.

You can get more involved too... but coming to the meeting doesn't mean you get lumbered with a job.

If you can't come, but have thoughts, do e mail the Chair Paula at
