The books, which are mainly by English classical authors such as DH Lawrence, Jane Austen, and George Orwell, and some textbooks on literature, will be used under WIN’s monthly reading circle programme which is likely to start in May at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe [in Harare].

Reading circles, also called literature circles, offer aspiring writers with opportunity to communicate and encourage thoughtful discussions and love for reading. Once every month, WIN members will meet to talk about either their unpublished works, works of other established writers or discuss some element of literature such as characterization, style, point of view, etc.

Occasionally, WIN will also give away books to affiliate clubs that warrant maximum utilization of the books.
