Renegade Readers January 7th 2016

This meeting was held in the first week of January rather than the 31st December.

Six people attended on a wet windy day and as usual there was a wide variety of pieces read out, these included:

A passage from The Testament of Mary by Colm Toibin (this is the Catholic World Report review which has a ‘different’ view on the book than mine)

A passage from The Children of  Green Knowe by Lucy M Boston (a TV series was made in the 1980’s and can be seen here)

William Stafford‘s poem Travelling Through The Dark (You Tube link)

Billy Collins‘ poems Forgetfulness and The Dead (You Tube links with Billy Collins reading)

A passage from In Praise of Shadows by Junichiro Tanizaki

Thomas Hardy‘s poem Beeny Cliff

There was a great deal of enjoyable discussion as well.

If you would like to attend please come along, it’s free and if you don’t want to read you can just listen. The next meeting is on Thursday January 28th from 11am to 1pm at Newcastle-under-Lyme Library. It will then take place on the last Thursday of each month.
