Reading Rooms is a reading for conversation programme, run by Hull Libraries, where trained facilitators read and share short stories and poetry exploring memory, emotion and thought in groups or individually.
The stories and poetry can be moving, funny, sad and uplifting and conversations are unique to each session, frequently taking unexpected directions. There is no requirement for participants to read aloud.
A Reading Room is an opportunity to relax, be read to (something many of us haven’t experienced since we were children) and have a good chat.
Reading Room groups will be taking place in various venues from October 2018.
Alternatively, if you are caring for someone, Reading Rooms can come to you at home.
To find out more and to book Reading Room sessions please contact Clare or Jessica on 01482 613602 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
