The Rochester Literature Festival (RLF), 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.
