Shared reading is really simple – we come together to read aloud a story or poem and then talk about what we’ve read. It’s not like school, we’re interested in hearing about people’s personal thoughts and experiences rather than testing your literacy skills, and there’s no pressure to speak if you’d rather just sit back and enjoy the story. It’s also not a Book Club as you don’t need to do any reading outside the group or commit to coming every week – just drop in when you feel like taking a little time out for yourself.
It’s a really relaxing way to escape the world for a couple of hours and connect with other people through great literature. It’s also a great way to meet people and make new friends in a relaxed & sociable environment.
We’ll be in The Ale House (647 Prescot Road, L13 5XG) every Wednesday from 2pm – 4pm so come and give it a try – you might be surprised at how it brightens your day.
