Mob Rule

Yesterday, at roughly 2.00pm, a Flash Mob descended on The Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library.

For the next 30 minutes the mob alternated between silence, indvidual reading and collectively reading aloud an extract from the Simon Armitage poem The Christening. Included in the mob was Norwich Writers' Circle member Anne Sanderson.

The event was organised by Writers' Centre Norwich to celebrate reading and to show their love of libraries. The flash mob was also designed to promote WCN's current Summer Reads scheme.
