The Reader Leader: taster session 1

The Reader’s Shared Reading sessions are places to relax, meet local people and share great literature with others every week. Just sit down and enjoy listening to a short story and poem – there’s no pressure to talk or read. Reading materials provided.

We’re delighted to be bringing two taster Shared Reading sessions to Croydon Literary Festival this year. They are open to everyone – all ages and reading abilities. Come along to explore the ideas in the poems and stories we read, and hear more about our project in Croydon and opportunities to get involved.

(Due to the nature of the event, sessions are limited to 15 attendees).

Any payments received will go towards Shared Reading in Croydon. All of The Reader’s weekly community based groups are free to attend. You can find out more at https://www.thereader.org.uk/getinvolved/joinagroup/

About The Reader Since 2008, The Reader has pioneered the use of Shared Reading to improve well-being, reduce social isolation and build resilience in diverse communities across the UK and beyond. We inspire and support people to read great literature aloud together. This simple idea changes lives and builds communities.

Groups we work with include looked after children, people in recovery from substance mis-use, prisoners, individuals living with dementia, parents, teachers, people with mental and physical health conditions and many more.

For more information please visit The Reader’s website at http://www.thereader.org.uk and follow us on Twitter at @thereaderorg and@TheReaderLondon.
