With just over a month to go to the big day, Christmas is beginning to surround us everywhere. If you're feeling overwhelmed by the stresses and strains of seasonal preparation, don't tear your hair out - instead, turn to some classic and calming literature in our special Short Course for Serious Readers, designed to provide an oasis amidst the pre-Christmas rush.

Take a break away from the heaving high streets, still the jingle of the Christmas bells and forget about present-buying pressure for this day long course where we'll spend the day looking at moments of literary escape from the whirling world. Join Kate McDonnell, The Reader Organisation's Quality Practice Manager, to read a selection of poetry and prose by the likes of Wordsworth, Louis Macneice and many others, considering how we make take the peace their words offer us back into the fray to prepare for the final furlong of festive organising.

Give yourself some space with great literature and good company at this seasonal Short Course for Serious Readers. To book your place, contact Literary Learning Coordinator Sophie Johnson on or call 0151 207 7207.
