About this event

Readers! Zoom in to Open Book's Next Chapters group for shared reading and relaxed chat.

Bring your own cuppa and we'll bring an hour of stories and poems around a monthly theme.

Turn the page and read the next chapter.

Join Lead Reader Kathryn once a month on Wednesdays from 5-6 pm.

Open Book aims to be a safe space for all our participants and Lead Readers. This means our groups should be a place in which everyone feels welcome, respected and comfortable. We ask that you follow CARE (confidentiality, attention, respect, enjoy) and the Safe Spaces Framework each time you join a session. You can read the Space Spaces Framework here.

No experience necessary. Dumfries and Galloway residents only. Ages 60+.

Organiser Open Book

Organiser of Next Chapters Shared Reading Group

We organise and run weekly shared reading sessions for a diverse range of community and public participants across Scotland. Part of a book and a poem are read aloud during these relaxed and informal sessions, with an Open Book Lead Reader on hand to help guide the discussion. We regularly run creative writing sessions for our readers, using the material the group is reading as inspiration to create new writing.
