SALFORD STAR STORY
 

Star date: 19th July 2010

THE STORY OF THE SALFORD STAR
Wednesday 21st July 2010 6pm free
Working Class Movement Library
51 The Crescent, Salford M5 4WX

Battles with Salford City Council, battles with finance, battling over the truth. The Salford Star, born in May 2006, is still battling against all the odds.

At 6pm on Wednesday 21st July at the Working Class Movement Library, hear how the Salford Star fits in with a radical publishing history dating back centuries. It's a short talk followed by questions and discussion, as part of the Invisible Histories Exhibition at the Library.

Who is the Salford Star? What is the Salford Star? Why is the Salford Star? Here's a chance to find out, with a talk about the magazine and how it fits with a history that spreads back centuries and includes Charles Dickens and Emily Pankhurst.

The Star, born in May 2006, managed to bring out eight printed issues and has been online only since April 2009. A community magazine that's online only is great – except that 60% of people in Salford do not have access to the net.

This is a chance to meet the people behind the Salford Star, to hear its history and to maybe debate its future. Shall we shut it down? Shall we keep it open? Will we ever get back in print? And what's it got to do with Charles Dickens and Iraq?

6pm at the Working Class Movement Library on The Crescent (Jubilee House, 51 The Crescent) M5 4WX.

We'll have some back issues, t-shirts and leaflets available too!
