Have you ever approached a stranger and asked them for their life story? Randwick City Library’s Writing for Pleasure group were asked to do just that. The result is a wonderful collection of stories revealing the lives of 18 strangers encountered in and around Randwick, published together in a book titled Stories from the Street.
Program facilitator Helene Grover guided her group as they sharpened their listening and writing skills and left the comfort of the classroom to ask a stranger “what’s your story?” For many of the participants a new friend was waiting behind a stranger’s face.
This is the second book of published work from Randwick City Library’s Writing for Pleasure program.
Stories from the Street can be purchased from any Randwick City Library location for $5.00. You can also search our catalogue for copies available for loan.Back to top
