Asian Readers’ Group starts at Slough Library

ALAG is proud to share some great news with you. Following on from activities which took place during Cityread 2015, members have been working in partnership with staff at Slough Libraries to provide a regular,  free reading group for those members of the local Slough community who choose to read in Urdu, Hindi and / or Panjabi.

The group will meet once a month on the first Wednesday starting on Wednesday 2nd December 2015 from 1.30 – 2.30pm. ALAG Chairperson, Gulshan Iqbal will facilitate the group whose first task will be to choose a new name and what they plan to read.

Anyone who reads or speaks the above languages is welcome to attend and light refreshments will be available. Poetry, fiction and author biographies will be just a few of the things open to discussion. Come along and join in the fun!

Cityread 2014 – forthcoming events

Things are really hotting up with a whole array of events to celebrate Cityread 2014 and the whole of London and beyond reading My Dear I wanted to tell you by Louisa Young.

English not your first language or you prefer to read in another language? No worries, ALAG have produced a synopsis of the book in Bengali, Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese), Gujarati, Hindi, Panjabi, Tamil and Urdu. Take your pick from some of these events where the story set in World War 1 will be read and discussed in a variety of languages.
