Fri 21st February - Sun 31st May
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Our Reading Round weekly sessions return on 10th January, led by author and critic Brian McAvera, former Fellow and lector of the Royal Literary Fund.
Sessions will run every Friday (with breaks on national holidays) at the Golden Thread Gallery until the end of May.
As always, it’s free of charge and complimentary refreshments are provided.
There is no preparation or homework required – it’s simply for the pure enjoyment of reading.
Handouts of the stories, extracts and articles will be provided each week, which the group reads together and then discusses in depth. Guided by McAvera, the group will explore the layers of each text, from the literary techniques used by the writers to genre and style.
The Royal Literary Fund Reading Rounds are a network of reading groups across the UK. Each group is run by former RLF Fellows, all published authors of literary merit who offer a unique, writerly perspective on the texts under discussion. Read more about the Royal Literary Fund here.
