these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”

Sharing Stories Book Club/ Meet up!

I made this: Avid Reader at 6:19 pm
 Venue:   Giraffe Bar and Grill
Date:    Tuesday 15th of October 2012
Time:    6pm - 8pm
Address: 6 Greek Street, Leeds, LS1 5RW
Tel:     (0113) 244 1500

As the man himself (that's you Tom) puts it, our meeting in October is:

A chance to discuss books in a friendly group. 

For the last few months Arts & Minds have been promoting a book every month that has some link to mental health. 

In this special partnership with Leeds Book Club (that's us!) we are encouraging everyone to come along and talk about the books. 

The book we are particularly focusing on is ‘Notes from an Exhibition’ by Patrick Gale. This novel tells the story of an artist with mental health issues and the family she leaves behind.

“By the end I had laughed and cried and put all his other books on my wish list. This is dense, thought-provoking, sensitive, satisfying, humorous, humane – a real treat.”
Daily Telegraph. 
So get reading and see you there!
