Welcome to a new library based interest group for 2011.

Black and White and Read All over

This group will meet on Thursdays at lunchtime in the Project Room to look at news in all its forms - newspapers, radio, TV, online and journals.

We aim to discuss the news as it appears - what makes a story news? Why do some stories stay with us and others fade from sight? Who decides what will be our news?

All you need to bring is an open and inquiring mind, a pencil and a notepad. Thursdays at 1.25pm (please eat before attending the meeting)

First Meeting - Choose any story from a newspaper, read it and then share your reading with a partner. Report back to the broader group something that struck you about that story and the way it was presented.
