Here's something delightful to do on a wintery Saturday afternoon:
The Weekend Read
As part of The Light in Winter, Fed Square are holding a Weekend Read where together with special guests, you’ll group read the ripping Victorian tale – The Mystery of a Hansom Cab. Written by English writer Fergus Hume in 1886 and set in Melbourne, the novel was Australia’s first international bestseller.
Imagine a cold winter Saturday afternoon, in a friendly venue, a warm drink and a bunch of people happy to hand the book around and each read a few pages until the mystery is solved on the last weekend of the Light in Winter.

It starts this Saturday, June 2nd 2.30 - 5pm and runs until June 29th. I have been asked to "open the reading" on Saturday 16th June, so come along and share a good book.
