Shared Reading groups bring people together through great literature to talk, laugh and share.

About this Event:

Come together to read, listen, and share personal reflections at our Shared Reading group where together we read literature aloud, creating a space for what we’ve read to help us make connections within ourselves and with others.  There is no need for group members to read aloud or speak – it’s fine to just listen. Our aim is to create a space where people feel at ease, everyone is welcome in this friendly group.  

About The Reader:

At The Reader, we believe that everyone experiences literature in their own way, but that reading the text together provides a shared language that can help us to understand ourselves and others better.  We are a national charity that wants to bring about a Reading Revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, which we see as a tool for helping humans survive and live well.
