TUESDAY 25 SEPTEMBER

TITLE: INTRODUCTION TO BIBLIOTHERAPY

TIME: 6.30PM - 8.00PM
LOCATION: CONROD'S COFFEE SHOP, PARLIAMENT STREET, RAMSEY
COST: FREE EVENT

Come and join the team from the Mobile Family Library and discover what goes on in a Bibliotherapy session. See how the Library uses its wide-ranging book collection and physical artefacts to discover shared experiences, encourage conversation, promote well-being, and help to combat loneliness and isolation.

A fun event for all ages and backgrounds, where you’ll see what can be achieved through the power of a book – especially when there’s tea and coffee! (drinks and snacks will be available to buy from Conrod’s on the night)

As space is limited please email info@familylibrary.im or call 640650 to book a place.

TITLE: OPEN MIC POETRY SLAM

TIME: 8.00PM - 10.30PM
LOCATION: NOA BAKEHOUSE, FORT STREET, DOUGLAS
COST: FREE EVENT

Coordinated by the team at Poetry Unlimited IOM, this is consistently one of the most popular events during Manx Litfest 2018. Poets have three minutes to perform their work in front of a panel of judges (and the audience), with marks deducted for overrunning their time slot. Previous champs have been Bridge Carter (2012), Georgia Lisette (2013 & 2014), Jennifer Davies (2015), Lisa Creighton (2016) and last year’s winner Jackie Morrey-Grace.

Who will rule the roost this year?

Event sponsored by Bridge Bookshop.

Please note - this event is now SOLD OUT
