'Extreme reading' photos needed for New Cross Learning exhibition

Do you like reading in weird and wonderful places, perhaps standing on your head or while bungee jumping?

If so, New Cross Learning wants you to take a photo and send it in for the Extreme Reading Exhibition that is planned for next month. They want to see photos of where and how people read in the most peculiar, strange, weird and extreme ways. Deadline for entries is 28 February; digital photos can be sent to and they will be printed for you. Be creative and have fun!

The exhibition will be held during the first week of March, which includes World Book Day on 7 March. On World Book Day, New Cross Learning will be holding a book exchange, a write-in for the Bridport prize (flash fiction, poetry and short stories) and will have an exhibition of 'extreme reading' photos.

The write-in will start at 6pm, book exchange will run from 6.30pm to 8pm and is the perfect opportunity to pick up some new reading material. Bring along a book of your own (or a pile) and try and convince someone to swap it with you. Refreshments will be available.

On Sunday 10 March there will be another big book sale from 2pm to 5pm.

Underneath New Cross Learning, within the endless catacombs of the Lewisham Historical Society, we have accumulated a store of thousands and thousands of books, and the time has come once again to sell some off! 

If you’ve been to one of our Big Book Sales before you will know that they are among the best places in London to pick up new reading material. Get there early for sweet deals. Hardbacks £1. Paperbacks five for £1. Refreshments will be available.
