Be nourished by women’s words over lunchtime as we rediscover the joy of being read to. From edge-of-your-seat espionage to tales of heart-warming tenderness, Story Café will spark your curiosity and freshen your perspective.

CANCELLED: Story Café, Thursdays 30th January, Thursdays 13th February to 2nd April, 30th April to 14th May, 28th May, 12.30pm to 2pm, Women only, £2/Free


Story Café is great if you’re new to reading, are struggling to find the time to read, or just want to enjoy listening to stories and poems being read aloud. It’s the perfect way to try different types of writing, and a brilliant way to meet people. We love to see new faces around the table, so why not top up your tea and become part of the story. Packed lunches welcome!

I enjoyed being read to, and the casual nature of nibbles and chat was lovely! My first time at GWL, and it’s expanded my literary horizons’ – Story cafe participant

As of Wednesday 18th March, Glasgow Women’s Library is closed until further notice. We believe that closing our doors is the best way to slow the spread of Covid-19. We are no longer taking bookings for events in our Spring programme, in the understanding that they may not go ahead. If you can check in at the end of April for updates on our website and social media, or by email, please do so. You can find more information on our response to Covid-19 here.

There are two ticket options for this event: a £2 ticket and a Free ticket. If a ticket price of £2 is in any way a barrier to you attending this event please choose a Free ticket. We also offer a Free ticket if you are a Friend of GWL.
