Tamil Reading Group reads Oliver Twist

The Tamil Reading Group meets on the last Saturday of every month at Willesden Green Library and last Saturday (28th April) as part of the London-wide Cityread programme, the group read and discussed the translated summary of Oliver Twist. Yamuna Tharmendiran founder member and facilitator said:

“When the reading was over some of the members were interested to know more about Charles Dickens and his work. I am sure the session has inspired  them to learn more about him”

This was great news as ALAG’s intention in producing these translations had been precisely this and the Tamil Reading Group’s support and participation is highly appreciated. Here are some photos of the group in action:
