If you live in the West Midlands or can get to central Birmingham on 11th May, you might be interested in this ‘readers’ afternoon’ (‘The Shock of Spring’ – great title), being run by Writing West Midlands.
It’s only £9 for an “afternoon of literature, discussion, and afternoon tea in the splendid setting of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery’s Waterhall Gallery." Four writers will be reading from – and talking about – their work.
