Sunderland Story Club

From the new year, we’re going to be running a book club with a difference – a story club focused on looking at multi and mono-authored collections. Nestled within the City Library Sunderland’s new home at the Museum and Winter Gardens, we’ll be discussing everyone from Chekhov to contemporary writers we’ve just discovered. Suggestions welcome… Everyone is welcome but do join our FB group or let us know you’re coming in some way.


January’s book is Kirsty Logan’s The Rental Heart (Salt Publishing).

We’re meeting January 10th at 5pm, City Library @ Muse

um and Winter Gardens, Sunderland. We’ll be set around the

interactive table for the first meeting. Hope to see you there.

The group will be run by myself and Samuel Weaver on alternate months. Thanks to Sam for the lovely poster.

As an aside, if you’re interested in running a Short Story Club at your local library / community group and you’re in another region, feel free to get in touch

We’ve wondered whether it could be nice to have a cross-country conversation where we’re all reading the same text, talking about stories not just as stories, but as collections.
