Shared Reading @ St Pauls Library

July 25 @ 11:00 am - September 26 @ 12:30 pm

Free

The Reader are running taster sessions and setting up weekly Shared Reading sessions for older people in a variety of settings across Bristol. In Shared Reading groups we bring people together to read stories and poems aloud, share our thoughts and feelings in a friendly and relaxed environment, usually over a cup of tea and some biscuits. As we read aloud together, our own stories unfold, people form connections with the literature and with each other. This simple thing changes lives. Shared Reading is proven to improve well-being, reduce social isolation and build stronger communities.  This 2 year project is funded by Bristol Ageing Better.

Everyone is welcome to this event, and it is drop-in and free.
