It’s the second of our Open Book sessions tonight! Please join us at The Stove on Dumfries High Street for a lovely evening – the sun is shining and I’ll make you a brew! What’s not to love?
6pm to 7.30pm, open to all ages and reading abilities as the event it tailored to suit. More details here
or, for those of you not on Social Media:
Calling all bookworms! Love to read? Love to listen to people read? Love to talk about books? Maybe you would like to improve your English conversation skills?
We have been approached by the wonderful Poet and Writer, Em Strang, who has kindly offered to lead a series of Open Book sessions for us, starting in September.
There will be five sessions in total (don’t worry if you can’t make them all!), plus a complimentary visit to Wigtown Book Festival for all participants.
Texts will be chosen carefully to suit the group, and sessions usually run for between 60 and 90 minutes.
Here’s a message from Em:
“Open Book warmly invites you to a series of shared reading sessions at The Stove in Dumfries, including a day out at Wigtown Book Festival on Monday September 25th. Part of a book and a poem will be read aloud during these relaxed and informal sessions, with Open Book Lead Reader, Em Strang, on hand to help guide the discussion. Everyone is very welcome, as are all levels of language skills and comprehension. Come along and share your thoughts!”
The next sessions will be held at The Stove, High Street, Dumfries on: Tuesday 5th, and Friday 15th September from 6 – 7.30pm. Light refreshments will be available and the venue is accessible by wheelchair.
Please share with anyone you think might enjoy this opportunity. The next two dates are September 5th and 15th.
