The Reader Organisation presents:
‘Words and Images’ Readers’ Day
in partnership with The Brindley Arts Centre
Saturday 13th June, 9.30-4.00pm
£20, £15 OAP & Student, £12 Unemployed & Leisure Card Holders
As part of Halton’s annual Literature Festival Talkwrite 8-13 June 2009, The Reader Organisation is presenting an event packed Readers’ Day.
Anyone who has attended one of our Readers’ Days in the past will know that they are relaxed and friendly affairs, intellectually stimulating and fully accessible to all, infusing the regular weekend Saturday with the creative energy made possible through people from all walks of life sharing in the delights and complexities of great books and poems. A wide range of poets, writers, and local literary enthusiasts will gather on the day and deliver a variety of workshops which will all be centred around the popular theme of Words and Images.
On the day we will be joined by award-winning author of Poppy Shakespeare, Clare Allan, as well as artist Viv Levy, local poet Rebecca Goss, and our own celebrated reading enthusiasts Jane Davis, Director of The Reader Organisation, and Angela MacMillan, Co-Editor of The Reader magazine.
Workshops will encompass a broad range of themes, including interesting discussions about the relationship between painting and literature, photographs and poetry, film adaptations and the classics, the illustration and the printed word, art and the imagination and much more – each exploring the dynamic relationship between words and images in its own unique way. There will also be a double poetry workshop led by local poet Rebecca Goss, which will include an afternoon creative writing session.
