TRO’s reading and health work features in the latest Guardian Podcast

This week’s Guardian podcast is on the subject of ‘writing and illness’.

The Reader Organisation features strongly in the second half of this (from twenty minutes on): one of their reporters, Richard Lea, visits a north London library to join one of Paul Higgins’ Get Into Reading groups, and finds out for himself how reading aloud helps with depression and dementia; plus, editor of The Reader, and Head of School of the Arts at the University of Liverpool, Phil Davis, talks about his academic research into how Shakespeare’s linguistic inventiveness sets neurons alight.
