The 2017 Elthamread kicked off with a lively forum for writers and would-be writers at Eltham Library in February. More than 50 people packed the library to hear three local authors – David K Roberts, Joanna Sterling and Wendy Moore – talk about self-publishing, writing short stories and mainstream publishing.
The speakers aim to organise further events for writers under the Elthamread banner. They appealed for volunteers interested in helping to run the next Elthamread this October. The aim is for everyone in Eltham to read the same book that month and get together at various events to discuss it. The initiative is sponsored by SEnine, Greenwich Libraries and Inala Technology Solutions.
Anyone interested in helping choose this year’s book or help in other ways should email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Elthamread website or Elthamread Facebook page or visit Eltham Library in the Eltham Centre.
