Reading the South is a collaboration between library services in the South of England and contemporary published writers and graphic artists with a strong connection to the region.
The writers and artists here have all led Reading the South creative writing and reading workshops or talks for local residents in libraries across the region to explore the south as a sense of place, a home, a refuge, through reading and creative writing.
