    Jane Austen’s Travelling Letter Exchange - Bolton Central Library and Museum

    Join us at Bolton Central Library, from 15 December to 19 December to take part in ‘The Travelling Letter Exchange’. The touring letter writing bureau, which has been designed by artist Laura Jamieson is an opportunity for you to sit down, write a letter and create a new archive of letters that shows what it is like to live in the North West in 2017. Designed to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death, the bureau celebrates the art of letter writing, everyone who writes a letter will receive a letter in return from another participant. The project is jointly funded by the Arts Council England “Grants for the Arts” lottery –funded grants programme and Time To Read. Time To Read is a unique partnership of 22 library authorities in the North West working together to promote reading.
