The Reader is popping up at the old George Henry Lee department store as part of Ed’s Place, a programme of events and exhibitions created by PLACED to bring Liverpool literature to locals at lunchtime.
The Literature at Lunchtime series will see office workers, retail staff and shoppers experience their local area aloud through books and poems written by Liverpool authors.
The drop-in groups are scheduled for Thursdays at 12.30pm for 45 minutes. Everyone is invited to bring their lunch and experience their city in a different way.
Echoing the 2018 Ed’s Place theme, as well as that of the 2018 Liverpool Biennial it’s running alongside, stories will be chosen to make people reflect on social, political and economic themes from our city through the words of local authors.
