See how cutting-edge research is demonstrating that reading really does make a difference.
We get great literature off the shelves and into the hands of people who need it, from all walks of life. Reading together creates shared experiences, helping us to engage and connect.
Our weekly shared reading groups run in a range of settings around the UK, connecting people through great literature which is read aloud and discussed.
From our national conference to the Penny Readings, our programme of events bring people together and literature to life.
Our courses give individuals and organisations the skills to deliver their own shared reading groups based on our best practice and years of experience.
