Another week, another newsletter. I wonder, do any of you have any suggestions for the reading room, any ideas? We're just winging it really. This week I came in and we had a new sign, and a can of paint to make the wall pretty. People contribute to the reading room in their own little ways all the time. And we love it. If you have something to contribute, please don't be shy.
Maybe you are shy...but still want to contribute? Have you donated to our Pozible project yet? Haha, good segue! Play your own part in how the reading room grows - donate at: our pozible page.
In its final days is Natasha Lee's photographic exhibition, Second. Come and see her beautiful works before Thursday. There are still some beautiful pieces for sale.
Our next exhibition for July has been announced: PRETTY/UGLY by Shaylee Leach and Daria Healy-Kolianin. Opens on the 14th July - all welcome!

Monthly meeting of the Adelaide Feminists Reading Group.
This month's discussion: Given the recent scandal in the meat industry, it's appropriate that we're sinking our teeth into 'The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Vegetarian-Feminist Critical Theory' in which Carol Adams explains the links between meat, patriarchy, feminism and animal rights. It's still a controversial book twenty years later, so we hope to have you join us for the discussion.

To The Surface :: SALA Exhibition by Meg Cowell
Our SALA show is by the wonderful Meg Cowell - the first artist to exhibit at the reading room 1 year ago!
These portraits feature varyingly ambiguous garments and items of fabric. Light catches a tiny constellation of bubbles. Dark water creatures waft to the surface.
