Mette Steenberg, pictured here (right) with Jane, has set up Læseforeningen, our sister organisation in Denmark, to implement the shared reading model in Aarhus and other cities in the country. Last week Jane visited Mette in Denmark to run an interactive session at the Next Library Conference in Aarhus, and deliver a Showcase-style event in Copenhagen to further spread the Reading Revolution. (You can read more about Jane’s Danish trip – including a liquorice pipe – on her blog.)
If your Danish is good (or, if like me you have to use Google Translate), you can read an online article published in a national newspapers, Kristeligt Dagblad, about the health impacts of shared reading. ‘Litteratur er god medicin’ was written by Benjamin Krasnik, who attended the event in Copenhagen.
