the reading room :: e-newsletter #57

Hi all,

We're still open over the silly season, though forgive us if our hours are erratic! We're busy planning for 2012 with two Fringe shows in Feb and two art exhibtions before that even!

Best wishes for the holidays to all our friends, family, volunteers and reading room lovers. We had no idea we'd come this far when we started way back in 2010. Make sure you overindulge and then sleep in every day that you can.

Soooo I know it's close to Christmas but unless heaps of people are busy then we go ahead!
We are doing The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier. It won the poll! Sounds juicy too.
Get excited everyone!

Les Petites Morts & It Started With A Punch In The Face

:: Wednesday 4th January ::
January meeting of the Feminist Reading Group :: 6:30 - 9:30
So who'd have thought this would still be going on a year later?
In the spirit of celebrating a year of great reading, heated discussion and fisticuffs (well, maybe not the last one), we're reading the graphic novel Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi, where a young girl grows up in the midst of revolution in Iran- juicy, I know.
Can't wait to see you there!

:: Tuesday 17th - Sunday 29th January  ::
Artists Cameron Brideoake & Vera Ada :: Exhibition Opening :: Tues 17th January, 6pm - 8pm
Our first exhibtion for 2012 looks amazing. Here's some more info about Vera Ada:
VĂ©ra Ada is a 22 year old language student interested in photography and linguistics. Whilst the latter is the
main focus of her career, she considers picture-making as her creative self. As an experimental photographer,
she works with as many formats as possible, including digital, 35mm and 60mm film cameras, as well as instant. She processes her work both
on computer and in the dark-room, and is fascinated by multiple and long exposures, light and chemical leaks, expired film, and cross-processing.
She focuses mainly on people in her images, working around the model with minimal direction. In this exhibition she's showcasing a variety of hand
printed dark-room portraits, as well as colour film multiple exposures, which have proven to be an ongoing obsession due to the inability to have
complete control over the final photo.
