Books & Reading

The following activities take place at Bishopston Library on Gloucester Road.

Creative Writing Group
Fridays, 11am – 1pm

The Creative writing group is a new weekly group run by Rob Henley and it is a session of creative writing for health and wellbeing.

All welcome to come along and play with words. Writing can be fun, light or deep, and connect us to wherever we are in our lives. Using story, poetry, imagination and memory, writing can make a difference to the way we think and feel about our world.

No writing experience needed. Come and try it!

Shared Reading Group
Wednesdays, 11.30am-1pm

Claire and Mina are two trained volunteer facilitators who hold weekly Shared Reading sessions. There is no pre-reading required as Claire and Mina bring the prepared stories/poems which are read aloud. The group then discuss the pieces and other thoughts which may arise.

Tea and coffee is provided.

Reading Group
Third Monday of the month, 2 – 3.30pm

This is a group of readers who meet monthly. They pre-choose a book to read and then discuss the book the following month.

The group has recently read the book, Blood of flowers by Anita Amirrezvani which they have been discussing and in October they will be discussing Too Much Happiness by Alice Munroe.
