Each week over the summer months we will present a video selection of short readings by three authors whose work we have been proud to publish in the last half century. The authors will read from their own work and choose also something from another Gallery author they admire. Along the way we will include some invited guests who will read work by authors who have died during those years.
The Series will begin on Wednesday 8 July 2020 and will continue each Wednesday thereafter.
