Stories in an old bookshop

Guided by storyteller Simon Hodges, this is far from one-way entertainment but a way of being together in the presence of an old story. After each story the audience is invited to reflect on the meanings in it. In this way the story is invited to enter the tapestry of our own lives, not an old relic but a new version of a lived reality.
