FiveLeaves Bookshop,Nottingham
28th Sept

five leaves bookshop Our book group is open to all. Attend every meeting, occasionally or just once a lifetime. All we ask is that you read the book in advance and take part in the discussion. There’s a short introduction by a member of staff or a group regular or someone we know with a special interest in the book in question.

From the ‘Hitchcock of the River Plate’ (Corriere della Sera) comes Piñeiro’s third novel, a unique tale that interveaves crime fiction with intimate tales of morality and search for individual freedom.

Poetry for Activism
with Manjit Singh Sahota

Nottingham Writers' Studio
29th Sept

poetry for activism This course will help writers, poets and participants explore the power of poetry, how we can use our art form to challenge bigotry and create a more supportive world of solidarity and understanding.

I will perform several poems to inspire creative writing tasks and lead to open floor discussion about the issue raised in the poems.

Participants will be supported through writing prompts and discussion points with the core aim of developing poems or creative ideas on how to challenge discrimination and create a more positive world.
