The Reader Podcast: Episode Three Out Now
The latest episode of our podcast celebrates the launch of The Reader Bookshelf - a constellation of reading matter that will shape our programming, partnerships and Shared Reading this year.
This year’s theme for The Reader Bookshelf is Walking The Earth, so in this episode we’re exploring two texts from the collection; The Promise, a picture book by Nicola Davies, and The Sycamore, a poem by Wendell Berry.
Both the book and poem make us look afresh at our relationship with the natural world, and the potential power and promise of this is discussed in an interview between author Nicola Davies and The Reader’s Kara Orford, and the words of Shared Reading group member Patricia.
We also hear from Clare Ellis from The Reader, who sets the mood with a few lines from Philip Larkin’s poem The Trees.
