Every third Wednesday of the month, Open Book will be reading aloud and discussing passages of fiction, non-fiction and poetry linked to works of art from the collection. This will then be used as inspiration for a short writing exercise. There is no need to read or prepare anything in advance. Each session is facilitated by a Lead Reader from Open Book.
