Beginning at 10am SLT (18:00 GMT), join us for a reading, sponsored by the Caledon Library and produced by Radio Riel, of the entire twelve chapters of Kenneth Grahame’s classic The Wind In The Willows, played back-to-back. This marks the culmination of a year-long series of listening parties on the Riverbank, A Willowy Place, Caledon Tanglewood:

Come as a character from Kenneth Grahame’s novel and join us as we listen to and discuss the adventures of the shy but loyal Mole, the poetical Water Rat, the brave Otter, the gruff but kindly Mr. Badger, the vainglorious Toad, and all the other creatures of wood, stream and field who populate this much-loved story. And hear, too, Grahame’s neo-pagan influences come to the fore as the animals meet the Great God Pan in The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, the chapter that gave the Pink Floyd album its name.

Big People may join us in Tinyville, or repose in comfort at the Oxbridge Library in Caledon Oxbridge:

The entire reading will last for about five hours. If you can’t be there in person, then click to tune in to our Main Stream or set your parcel to
