Shared Reading Sessions

Come along to our free online shared reading sessions to enjoy great literature, discussion and company on Tuesday afternoons, from 1 – 2pm

Shared reading is a simple and effective way of connecting with each other through experiencing great literature. Each week a poem or short story is brought along to share and discuss. That’s it! It’s not literary criticism, there’s no homework – just a safe space where anyone can come along to listen and share their thoughts. Shared Reading builds warm and lively communities by bringing people together and books to life.

This free online event will be run using Zoom. After registration through Eventbrite for each session, the link will be accessible on the Online Event page.
