Bring out the bunting! We are 1!

Looking at  my calender, I was surprised to see that our little book group has been going for a whole year!

A lot has happened over the last year.

I’ve met fantastic people from all sorts of backgrounds and age groups at the group, and as well as reading some awesome books, I also met and hosted a night with one of my favourite authors Stella Duffy.

Reading is such a weird solitary pasttime, that having this group to go to once a month really makes my life a lot better.

In the style of a Miss World contestant, I’d like to thank  Claire and Olivia at New Writing North for supporting us;  Sara Dennis and Middlesbrough Libraries for rescuing us and providing my favourite place in the town as a venue;  and, most importantly,  the people who come every month or once in a  while – you make this happen!


About the group

The Tees Valley Book Group meets at Stockton Central Library at 6.30pm on the first Tuesday of the month.
