On Monday 20th April, learn how to unlock young people’s love of literature

Written by Beth Pochin, 17th April 2015
“I didn’t do reading before, but it’s fun and I love it now. Reading aloud is better than in your head. It’s like you’re on an adventure, you can understand more aloud.” -

On Monday 20th April from 2-5pm, discover how you can inspire a love of words and reading in young people, from tiny tots to teens!

Join Up for Arts, championing arts participation and volunteering in Merseyside, and The Reader Organisation, pioneering an exciting new way to engage with literature through shared reading groups across the UK.

Highlights will include:

  • An extract from David Almond’s award-winning book Skellig, read by BBC Radio Merseyside’s very own Roger Phillips
  • Top 10 Tips for reading with children and a Q&A, brought to you by practitioners from The Reader Organisation
  • An opportunity to see shared reading in action, in The Reader Organisation’s end-of-talk taster sessions
  • Information about the new Liverpool Families project, and how you can get involved in reading with disadvantaged children across the city.
