Please join us on the closing day of our spring programme
Please join Tina Fiske and Young Assistant Penny Gonlag at 3pm for a series of open readings that will reflect back on our spring programme. Tina and Penny will lead the reading, but all are welcome to drop in and to participate. No preparation needed.
Including extracts from Rose George’s Deep Sea and Foreign Going (2013), Anne Michaels’ The Winter Vault (2009) and Allan Sekula’s Ship of Fools / The Docker’s Museum (2015), as well as short passages from Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species (1859) and Giovanni Belzoni’s Narrative of Operations (1822)
If you’d like a copy of the readings, please be in touch.
Throughout the day
Come and enjoy short minute-long films made by Eleanor, Emily and Freya (Wallace Hall S6) in response to different aspects of Giovanni Belzoni’s Narrative of Operations (1822).
Part of our Reading Griersons Library project.

We’ll also have on loan a collection of canopic jars made by P1-P4 pupils at Penpont Primary, complete with stories of their excavation and transport. Come and see their display and read the fascinating tales!
