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!
