It was good to see a new participator as well as the regular readers. As usual a wide variety of pieces were read out and thoroughly discussed as well as many issues which arose from those discussions! A lovely couple of hours as ever.
The pieces read included:
The Trout a poem by John Montague
A passage from Brideshead Revisited (link to the audiobook read by Sir John Gielgud on You Tube) by Evelyn Waugh
Patrick Kavanagh‘s poem Bluebells for Love – this letter may be interesting as background to the poem
A passage from Rose Tremain‘s novel Merivel
A passage from Wordsworth‘s Prelude about his ascent of Snowdon
A passage from The Story of The Treasure Seekers (link to the full text on Project Gutenberg) by Edith Nesbit
A passage from The Crying Tree a novel by Naseem Rakha
We meet again on Thursday February 25th from 11am until 1pm at Newcastle-under-Lyme Library, it is free to attend, all are welcome whether you read something or just listen.
