Readers’ Day at Brindley Arts Centre May 17th, 2008

Written by jen, 13th May 2008

This coming Saturday (17th May),The Reader Organisation working with the award-winning Brindley Arts Centre in Runcorn, presents another of its highly enjoyable Readers' Days: fun, friendly and thought-provoking days for everyone who loves reading, writing and talking about books.

As it is the National Year of Reading, we are following the month's theme of ‘Mind and Body' to bring you an exciting and varied series of talks and workshops from members of The Reader Organisation and local writers.

The programme for the day includes:
• a talk by Jane Davis, Director of The Reader Organisation, about the origins and the practice of the nationally acclaimed 'Get Into Reading' project;
• a discussion by Caroline Smailes (author of the superb novel In Search of Adam) about how writers use their own memories to create their plots and stories;
• a journey through poetry - from birth to death, run by poet Rebecca Goss exploring changes that affect our bodies and mind in universal and personal experiences;
• a workshop led by  Chris Routledge, Editor of The Reader Online, which explores, how once the body has gone, over time stories cover up the real you;
• and a chance to take part in a Book of the Film and the Film of the Book workshop with Ella Jolly about The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, an inspirational tale of the strength and power of the mind in the face of physical adversity.

All this and much, much more!


The programme for the day is available to download here: readersday08programme and contains all the information about the event. Tickets cost £20 (£15 concessions/£12 income support and leisure card), which includes lunch, and morning/afternoon refreshments and can be booked via the Brindley Box Office on 0151 907 8360.
