Michael-Symmons-Roberts

Michael Symmons Roberts will be reading at the Holburne Museum in Bath on the evening of our meetup.  He is one of our major writers and it will be well worth while to immerse ourselves in his work for part of the afternoon as a prelude to hearing him read.  Suggestions welcome from all interested in this idea. If we can create a really seriously good programme, I will invite him to drop by……

Booked in for the Holburne Reading: Sue Boyle, Sarah Gregory

Shirley Wright will introduce her latest collection

Claire Dyer will introduce her latest novel ‘The Last Day’ which was published by The Dome Press on 15th February 2018
