    Location: County Room, Witham Hall, 3 Horsemarket, Barnard Castle

    Time: 10.30 am to 12 noon

     The Reading Round is a different sort of reading group promoted by the Royal Literary Fund.  Each group is led by a "lector", a working writer - & in Barnard Castle, that's me.    

    In each session we discuss a short story and a selection of poems, each read aloud with texts provided.  There is no homework, you just bring yourself and your love of reading.  

    New members welcome.           Cost £3 per session to cover room hire.

    If you are interested in joining our group email me @
