Starting this week there are going to be some gradual improvements being installed at the reading room. Why? Becasue we successfully reached our fundraising target! Thank you to everyone who donated. First up - some flood-proofing. Coming soon: new lights, wifi and power.
This Friday Nature Loves Courage will be launching their zine, and generally having good times from 5:30ish at the reading room. If you haven't been before, try it, you'll like it. If you feel like reading something aloud (anything!) this is the place to start.
SALA is on and if you haven't had a look so far, there are still lots of shows to see. Meg Cowell's photographic exhibition To The Surface opened on Friday 5th August and will run until August 28th.

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.

September Meeting of the Feminist Reading Group 6:30 - 9:30
You might have heard about Gail Dines. You may have seen her on Q&A. You may have been so infuriated you yelled expletives at your television screen.
The good news is, now you can vent to your heart's delight (to/with/at other people!), because for this month's meeting, we're reading her controversial book 'Pornland: How Porn has Hijacked Our Sexuality'.
