The Reader runs weekly groups where we bring people together to read novels, short stories, plays and poems, creating a space for people to be together, share thoughts and have personal reflections. Trained Reader Leaders read the stories aloud to the group each week and all our sessions are free to attend, so everyone--no matter their background or ability--can join in. Group members are welcome to read aloud, join the discussions or sit back and enjoy a good story. Shared Reading is about making personal connection – what the literature makes us feel, the meaning it holds for each of us, and the shared experiences we discover through discussions.
The Reader has been running Shared Reading groups in Kensington & Chelsea since 2010. We run groups across the borough each week in libraries, community centres, hospitals, and day centres. Please contact us for a list of our weekly groups.
