Tea and Cake with our friends from the North
Shared Reading, which began here in Merseyside, is now a global movement with groups and volunteers in over 16 countries.
Back in 2008, Mette Steenberg the Director of Laeseforeningen (The Reading Society, Denmark) was one of the first to export the Reading Revolution to Europe. Since then, Shared Reading in Denmark has gone from strength-to-strength and is helping young people develop self-confidence and agency.
In this session, The Reader’s Founder, Jane Davis, talks to Mette about how Laeseforeningen is helping vulnerable young people to develop their confidence through reading.
We’ll hear from some of the young people themselves about the texts that have had an impact on them personally and there’ll be some Shared Reading and cake too.
