Reading with Care
‘It’s the reading groups that have helped me more than anything else – they are a different kind of medicine.’
Shared Reading group member
Join us for this interactive online session where we’ll be exploring what reading the world’s greatest writers, together and aloud, can do for us when we’re faced with tough times.
Experts in health and criminal justice, along with a Shared Reading group leader who uses literature to cope with chronic pain, will share examples and experiences of what ‘reading in action’ can do. There’ll also be time for audience questions at the end.
This event will be of interest to anyone who’s curious about what reading can do for a wide variety of individuals and to all those involved in thinking about the therapeutic benefits of literature and life.
Chaired by The Reader’s Helen Wilson who’ll be joined by:
Dr Andy Jones (Royal Liverpool Hospitals), Professor Alison Liebling (Director of the Prisons Research Centre, University of Cambridge), Helen Cook (Reader Leader Volunteer).
This event will take place on Zoom.
