What’s on at Worksop Library
BOOKS AND READING EXHIBITION
Until Thursday 21st November
Voices presents a thought-provoking collection of poetry created by people whose voices, for health, social or age-related reasons, are rarely heard, combined with photographs of those involved. Award-winning poet Ben Norris worked with four very different groups across Nottinghamshire to develop a body of poems that express their emotions, experiences, and stories. For more details on this free exhibition visit www.inspireculture.org.uk/voices.
