Readers of The Lost Art

Welcome to the Readers of the Lost Art…

May 5th, 2020

Welcome to the Newcastle Graphic Novels Reading Group! Based at Newcastle City Library, since 2nd March 2004 we have been having lively discussions, reviews and the opportunity to borrow from the Library’s collection of Graphic Novels.


ANNOUNCEMENT: Because of the closing of the City Library due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Readers of the Lost Art will not be meeting in person on Tuesdays for the foreseeable future. We will be having virtual meetings using Zoom. Invites will be sent by email – please email us here for joining details: Feel free to keep posting on Facebook and / or take part in discussions by email if this is your preferred way of taking part. Keep going everyone, and read comics!

We usually meet every two weeks on a Tuesday between 6.00 – 7.30pm to discuss one of the many graphic novels from the library’s collection. New members are always welcome and you don’t have to have read the book of the month.

Meeting Venue
Our next meeting is between 6- 7pm on Tuesday 15th December 2020 via Zoom. Please email us for joining instructions at:
