• Hope Cafe Changes!

    Today Wee Read does a last writing group at The Hope Cafe Lanark- at the current venue at least!Whilst we look at getting a new venue for Lanark, join Adrian Bailey at The Stonehouse Hope Cafe on Thursday the 28th of April for ‘Literature and Spirit’.At St. Ninian’s Church, 11-12 All welcome.spirit



    Join us in a reading group which explores spiritual moments and insights in Literature.We’ll start by looking at a range of literature from different times and cultures, including our own.

    We’ll talk about what ‘spirit’ means to us personally.

    Our journey will discover words which may console, or inspire or deepen our own spiritual awareness.

    We’ll look at short pieces that we may use for ‘contemplative reading’.

    Some of the things we read will be by writers from a particular religious tradition, but we’ll also explore how non-religious writers express spirituality.

    With tea, biscuits, friendly fellowship and blether, the group seeks to give us an hour’s reflection and a nourishing retreat

    And enjoyment!Starting Thursday 28 April 2016 at 11am for an hour or so.

    Hope Café at St Ninian’s Church, Stonehouse, 10 Vicars Rd ML9 3EB



Born in 1958 and brought up in Blantyre in a family of seven. Moved to Glasgow in 1976 and stayed until 2012. Then I moved back to Hamilton where I had attended secondary school, for 4 years. Home is now Glasgow, again, I am a weegie through 'n through. I have two daughters, and four granddaughters who all light up my life. My experience of working with poetry, writing, reading and so on is from my childhood. One of my poems was published in a school magazine when I was 12. I am now trying to publish my first grown-up booklet of poems within the next year or so. I trained and studied to become a librarian from 1977. It was the one job I wanted since reading in Hamilton Townhouse Library in the early 1970's!I watched the staff and thought, I'd like to work here... Bibliotherapy came into my life in 2007, at Glasgow Women's Library.
