Free arts programme from The Assembly House Trust continues with an online critical reading discussion to join in with during lockdown

The Assembly House Trust’s free online arts programme continues with a discussion about a book described as “a manifesto for ‘toxic girls’”.

Writers Philippa Snow and Rose Higham-Stainton will be reading from and discussing Heroines, by Kate Zambreno (Semiotext(e), 2012) at 7.30pm on Thursday April 23 which the author says “reclaims the wives and mistresses of modernism for literature and feminism.”

The free event is part of a new weekly live stream service of arts and culture events hosted by and funded by The Assembly House Trust, the arts charity which owns The Assembly House in Norwich.

In the Assembly Online critical reading discussion, audience members can pose questions via the chatroom for Philippa and Rose to talk about.
