Read & Share

Huge thanks to committee member Tanya Laing who was this term’s Read and Share facilitator this morning. 
 
Twenty-six sparkling pieces of writing were shared and celebrated. As a relative newcomer to Mungrisdale Writers I am often stunned and deeply moved by the breadth, quality and variety of the works shared. 
 
For those who requested the details – the beautiful piece of music Tanya chose to lead us ‘Into the Mood’ was Arvo Pärt’s Spiegel im Spiegel from the album of the same name, available at Amazon UK here.
 
Epitaph for a Tree by Argentinian poet Silvina Ocampo is part of a collection, available at Amazon UK here
 
Grateful thanks, too, to those who kindly sent apologies and greetings for today. And to the bakers!
 
Summer Term first meeting on the 11th May. AwayDay on the 25th May. Next Read and Share billed for the 27th July, 10.30-1.30. All 2017 dates here.
