Written by stickyeyes, 4th May 2011

There are only a few tickets available for our Reading for Wellbeing Conference on 17th May 2011 at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton, Wirral, so book now to reserve your space and hear from our very special guest speakers from the USA: Pulitzer and Orange prize-winning novelist, Marilynne Robinson (Gilead and Home), and acclaimed author and researcher Professor Maryanne Wolf (Proust and the Squid); plus Professor Rick Rylance (AHRC) and Sue Charteris (Shared Intelligence).

“Get Into Reading is one of the most significant developments to have taken place in Mersey Care NHS Trust and mental health practice in the last ten years.” Dr David Fearnley, Medical Director, Mersey Care NHS Trust; Psychiatrist of the Year 2009.

In a day of conversation, debate and reading, find out how literature can help you in your profession, your community and in your own life. Newly published research from TRO and Liverpool Health Inequalities Research Institute, ‘Therapeutic Benefits of Reading in Relation to Depression’, will also be presented.

“It means a lot to me to be part of this reading group and it has helped me in my life outside the group as well.” Get Into Reading group member

Don't forget: you can also join TRO and Marilynne Robinson for dinner on the 16th May at 7.30pm, Blackburne House (Blackburne Place, Liverpool, L8 7PE).
