TODAY (Tuesday) between 12 and 1, Stephen Shieber will be reading from his forthcoming collection, Being Normal.
Later, from 7.30, Rosalind Wyllie, author of the forthcoming novel Everything You Ever Wanted, will be taking part in a discussion about new writing.
Then, on Friday 4 April between 12 and 1, Rosalind will be reading from Everything You Ever Wanted.
All of the events take place at the Jesmond Methodist Church, and are free.
