Reading Round: A No-Homework Reading Workshop SOLD OUT

St Cross College: Seminar Room

£7 - £12.50

Event in association with

Join a small and intimate group of 15 to listen to a story and be transported.  Enjoy hearing novelist Tim Pears read a selection of prose and poetry, and then discuss what you have heard. The texts may come from any era or genre, featuring famous or unknown writers. Get ready to be surprised and delighted.

These are one-off sessions derived from an initiative of the Royal Literary Fund, in which writers were invited to run weekly reading groups. They choose, typically, a short story and a poem, read them aloud. Participants are given photocopies of the pieces and can read along while they listen or close their eyes, as they wish. This experiment turned out to produce a rather magical experience and has been rolled out across the country.

Pears is author of a number of novels including In the Place of Fallen Leaves, winner of the Hawthornden Prize, and the acclaimed West Country trilogy of The Horseman and The Wanderers and the recently published The Redeemed.

This event is staged with The Royal Literary Fund.

This event lasts 90 minutes.
