A Little, Aloud
Masterclass with Angela Macmillan and Katie Clark
Wednesday 27th October 2010
19 Abercromby Square, Liverpool, L69 7ZG
10.30am – 3.00pm
Come along to this Masterclass and spend time reading in the company of Angela Macmillan, editor of our new anthology A Little, Aloud, a selection of the very best prose and poetry especially chosen for reading aloud, published by Chatto & Windus.
Find out how the book came about, why reading aloud is so vital, and take part in a special shared reading session.
Through our Get Into Reading (GIR) project, we are discovering that reading aloud brings remarkable health and happiness benefits: it stimulates thought and memory, encourages the sharing of ideas and feelings, hopes and fears – enriching our lives and minds. Katie Clark, TRO’s Dementia and Elderly Care Project Manager, will share her experiences of reading aloud with elderly people and those suffering from dementia, and explain how you can use A Little, Aloud to make a big difference to people’s lives.
The cost of the day is £40, which includes lunch, refreshments and a free copy of A Little, Aloud. Please contact us with any special dietary requirements.
