What will you bring to the table?

The Rochester Literature Festival, in conjunction with Medway Libraries, is hosting a Literary Potlatch at Strood Library on March 23rd.

An ancient Native American word, the purpose of a Potlatch was the re-distribution and reciprocity of wealth, with all invited to ‘bring something to the table’. The wealth, in this instance, will take the form of: ‘Parashare’ – sharing a paragraph from your favourite book, or a piece of your own writing; sharing knowledge and opinions via speed debating or simply sharing some fun with writers’ games!

This networking event for readers, writers and creative minds alike will run from 10am – 12noon, and be followed by an informal lunch time get together at the Parana Caffe, a short walk away, for those who wish to continue their conversations.

The event is free and you can secure your place by calling 01634 335890.

We look forward to seeing you there 🙂
