We're delighted to announce that Time To Read will be teaming up with "Britain's favourite literary lunatics" LipService to produce a new piece of (probably hilarious) touring theatre. As if that wasn't enough, we have also commissioned the artist/producer/maker Laura Jamieson to create a new visual art element looking at Austen’s letters. Remember those days when people actually used to write to each other, on paper, rather than email or text? That sort of thing will be involved.

Both pieces will be touring North West libraries later on this year.Want to know more? Keep on checking the Time To Read website.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
