The Literature Lounge set up by Literature Wales for the month of October is now in its final week, and it's concluding with an array of events for children and adults alike.
Literature Wales established the pop-up open space for one month only in an empty unit in Cardiff's St David's shopping complex. Although the venture is now drawing to an end, there are some exciting half term events and author talks still to squeeze in this week.
Tomorrow morning (Wednesday) will see Gwyneth Glyn present stories and songs for babies and children in the medium of Welsh, while on Wednesday evening from 7pm the national poet of Wales Gillian Clarke will be performing some of her work alongside the this year's National Eisteddfod Chaired poet Rhys Iorwerth in a bilingual event.
On Friday there will be a family day with games, workshops and literary fun. The day will also include a bilingual rapping/performance workshop with Rufus Mufasa from 3-5pm. Plus on Saturday afternoon from 2pm, children's author Jenny Sullivan reads from her work and launches her new book Full Moon.
Literature Wales are planning to close the Literature Lounge with a party on Sunday afternoon from 2pm. Plans are still being finalised - so visit the Literature Wales website for the latest information - but they will be joining forces with National Theatre Wales and their Word4Word spoken word and poetry project. There will be a two hour open mic slot on the theme of journeys, and Welsh poet Mab Jones will be headlining the event.
