Boldmere Library in Birmingham
We will be reading extracts from books and poems along the high street and in shops. The idea is that reading will "escape" from the library into the community. We have asked local shops and businesses to co-operate with us allowing us to perform in their premises.
So far we have the backing of shops such as Boots, The Harvester Pub, The Co-op, Hindley's Cafe and a local butchers. The idea is that we will read extracts relevant to the shop but without causing too much disruption to their business. We will hand out leaflets and joining forms after each reading.
