With Valentines creeping closer we’re taking up some suitably romantic weekend reading as recommended by Practice Mentor Amanda – Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd.
This week we’re sharing that loving feeling by delving into our anthology A Little, Aloud With Love. Practice Mentor Clare is back with another recommendation and a reflection on how it’s been received in a Shared Reading group.
As the world rushes towards Valentines Day in a flurry of reds and pinks and heart shaped balloons we thought we’d pause for thought. Over the next week members of our Reader family will be reflecting on their favourite extracts from the A Little Aloud With Love anthology.
‘Love loves to love love…’ Has any other subject inspired history’s greatest writers more? As we prepare to celebrate A Little, Aloud with Love‘s first birthday this Valentines Day we’re collating our favourite love quotes from the world’s wordsmiths.
As Angela McMillan, co-editor of The Reader magazine, turns her attention to her reading list for the year ahead, we ask what she loved in 2016.
Winter’s chill may not have the same bite as we might have expected but there’s plenty to chew on in the latest issue of The Reader.
There’s no hiding from it anymore, Christmas is coming. But don’t panic, we’ve got bookish gifts all wrapped up!
Two years on from the launch of our anthology, we find ourselves returning to On Active Service to mark Remembrance Day with a special Featured Poem from Wilfred Owen, Dulce et Decorum Est.
The weather is turning, the leaves are falling, Autumn is most certainly upon us and with a new season comes a new edition of The Reader Magazine. Introducing Issue 63.
Continuing on from yesterday’s focus on dementia for World Alzheimer’s Day, we look at some of the poems which work well in Shared Reading groups.
