Cafe Culture: The Reading Revolution

Jane Davis will take part in Cafe Culture, discussions and debate cafe style in Newcastle, next Monday evening (7-9pm):

The Reader Organisation pioneers new approaches to reading, reaching people across the community from children who don’ t attend school to older people with dementia.

We know that reading fiction and poetry is good for us, but just how good? Can reading poetry help people with neurological dysfunctions, can reading Dickens cure depression? Jane has also developed innovative read-aloud and personal response models which are at the heart of these approaches.

Events are from 7pm prompt until 9pm and are held at the Urban Café, Dance City, Temple Street, NE1 4BR.
