Event description
An Online Reading for Wellbeing session offering a powerful sense of connection with other people and with great literature!

About this Event

Chesterfield Shared Reading hosts weekly Online Reading for Wellbeing sessions with Adults around Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire, sharing and connecting with great literature as part of the Reading Revolution envisaged by national charity The Reader. It isn't the same as a Book Club and it isn't academic. But it's free and open to anyone over the age of 18!

Our groups are organised and facilitated by trained and accredited volunteer Reader Leaders and are provided free.

Each group will have a maximum of 12 participants in order to foster a relaxed and friendly atmosphere within the group. Each session will take place on Zoom and last for 90 minutes. Particpants must be aged 18+.

At a time when many people are still shielding or anxious about leaving their homes, virtual shared reading offers a powerful sense of connection with other people and with great literature. Reading for Wellbeing brings great poems and stories to life through reading aloud and discussion, and we have found that it works well in video meetings. Our groups are a place to relax, make new friends and share poems or stories with others, every week.

The beauty of an online group meeting is that it doesn’t matter where you live: anyone who has a computer can join in.

So if you live elsewhere in Derbyshire or beyond you are very welcome to join us for one of our Reading for Wellbeing sessions!

Who can join? Anyone over the age of 18 who has internet access can join. This session will be ideal for anyone who might want a taste of Shared Reading just to see what it's like. For GDPR and safeguarding purposes, registration via Eventbrite is essential and Zoom access to session will be limited to those who have pre-registered.

How much will it cost?Joining with video on a computer or other internet-connected device is free.
