“I've found a real sense of community and belonging in my group. It has helped me to come out of isolation when not very well. I've really enjoyed discovering new/different books and poems that I wouldn't necessarily read on my own. It has built my confidence and provides an important part of structuring my week.” - shared reading group member, London
