28 Nov Reader Leader
The Reader works to connect people with great literature and each other through Shared Reading Groups. We believe that great literature provides us with vital information about being human and that reading together gives us a language for meaningful communication, revealing what is both common and unique about our thoughts. In our weekly shared reading groups we read great literature aloud together which enables group members to connect and come to new levels of understanding with their own lives, and those of other people. We believe this experience is vital for everyone which is why we work to create stimulating, friendly and non-pressured environments in our groups where shared meanings are established across social, educational and cultural boundaries.
We are currently looking for volunteers to run our weekly Shared Reading Groups. By delivering a Shared Reading group you will be giving people in the local community the chance to experience reading in a new way, to interact with others, to reflect on their own lives and to think about the world we live in. We offer volunteers the chance to develop their skills by leading a Shared Reading group, by being part of their group member’s progress and also by experiencing shared reading for yourself.
