Manchester City Library Closure



Last Friday 19th March I attended the public closure of the Manchester City Library, which will be under renovation until 2013. It was a moving evening and I felt like I was a part of the heartbeat of this city. I was asked to do a reading in the beautiful circular main hall. I read, wobbly voiced, lump in throat in the acoustically challenging space, in hope of representing some of the thoughts of the wonderful library staff I had talked to about the closure.
I hope to make a publication from the photographs and words I've collected.

Hi I like the photo you took, the lighting is excellent what camera did you use?. Are you still going to be publishing a book with the photos/text? I would love to see more from this set. Ive been following your blog and flickr site for awhile but never commented thought I should make the effort :-).

Take care
John
