Literature lovers are in for a treat with the new monthly ‘Writers in the Library’ event in Cirencester Library. This brand-new venture is the brain-child of Frank McMahon, the author of two well-received poetry collections. Frank said “There is a wealth of literary talent in Cirencester and its surrounding villages and through ‘Writers in the Library’ we are planning to bring local writers and readers together in a welcoming environment. Members of the public, writers or not, can bring their own work or that of other authors to read fiction, non-fiction and poetry to an informal, friendly audience.”
Set up with the enthusiastic support of three Cirencester writers groups, each session will feature a short reading by a guest author followed by an Open Mic, where both beginner and experienced writers are welcome to share their work or read a favourite piece in a supportive environment.
Located upstairs in Cirencester Library, sessions will run for an hour on the second Monday of each month at 2pm. Tea and coffee will be available. The first event takes place on Monday June 12th at 2pm. Please come along. You will be sure of a warm welcome.
