By kind invitation of the organisers of the Cambridge Literary Festival, The Lots Road Group of Portrait Painters are reprising their London Exhibition The Art of Reading, in association with BookTrust.  The 15 portraits span all ages. All explore the joys of reading, and subjects include well-known authors, agents, family and friends. Each painting is accompanied by a narrative revealing the subjects' reading tastes and the influence of reading on their lives.

CDS member, Katherine Firth, has painted Professor Dame Gillian Beer, ex-President of Clare Hall, renowned literary critic and author and Honorary Patron of the Cambridge Literary Festival.

The Festival runs from Tuesday 18th April - Sunday 23rd April; with evening events only on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and the main Festival events running all day on  Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The Hall will act as a central hub for book sales and signings and will be open from 10am-9pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Coffee will be available and visitors are welcome to drop in whether or not they are attending one of the events.  Visit the Festival website for details about event booking.
