We’re remembering Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and Reader favourite Mary Oliver, who died aged 83 last week.
It’s going to be a busy Roald Dahl Day for us here at The Reader as we have quite a few exciting special events on the cards but of course we’ll be making time to read some of the great man’s works too!
In a glorious return to our regular Read of the Week feature, our departing Reading Resources intern Deborah has shared a favourite read, Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.
Great Shared Reading doesn’t need much in the way of surroundings: some people in a space, with chairs to sit on, a story or a poem to read. But over the last 12 months, some of our volunteers at The Reader have had the opportunity to run Shared Reading groups in the beautiful surroundings of Kensington Palace in London.
A brand spanking new Read of the Week from our Finance and People Assistant Kate who has chosen Red Dust Road by Jackie Kay.
This week our Reader Leader Lizzie has chosen Children’s Children, a collection of short stories by Belfast-based writer Jan Carson.
Our Read of the Week comes recommended by Reader Leader Val, who has suggested Roddy Doyle’s Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.
A special Read of the Week today comes recommended by one of our lovely volunteers, David who assists the Reading Resources team at our Calderstones HQ. He’s chosen Watership Down by Richard Adams.
This week’s Read comes recommended by Rachel from the Development team – Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
