Settle down with a cup of something warm and listen to a 15-minute reading from one of a carefully selected group of writers. Many of them are award-winning, all of them are ground-breaking. What better way to spend your afternoon tea break? 

Today, Jan Carson reads her short story “Soup” (15 min approx).
