Shared Reading Taster sessions – Derby Book Festival

Lots of people ask us what happens at a Shared Reading group – so here’s your chance to find out!

We’ll have two Shared Reading Taster sessions in QUAD (Participation Space on the ground floor) at 1.30pm and 4pm (two sessions) led by Shared Reading Project Lead, Lyndsey.  The sessions are FREE but booking is essential – numbers are limited to 10 people at each session. You can book your place from Monday 26 September at 10am.

The sessions will introduce you to a range of poems and invite you to reflect on how the words impact us.  Our Shared Reading groups are welcoming and informal and there is no pressure to participate in any particular way. You can read, listen, talk, ask questions or just observe.  The sessions will be held in between Festival events, enabling you to pop in and enjoy the session before your next event.
