Event description

Description

Reading a story to another person creates a bond between two people. It is often assumed that reading aloud is only for children, but the practice was once a common pleasure for adults too. The time has come to rediscover it. This simple yet powerful action connects us with our friends, helps us centre ourselves in the present and lets us focus gently on what matters.

Join To Read Aloud author Francesco Dimitri on World Read Aloud Day 2018 for an enthralling evening storytelling. To Read Aloud consists of 75 extracts of an average 1000 words each, from writers ranging from Lewis Carroll to Robert Macfarlane, arranged under thematic chapters including Love, Loss, Lightness, Pleasure, and Work. The evening will begin at 6pm with an informal drinks reception. Then, at 6.30pm, guests – led by Francesco, will both read and be read to, pairing off and then switching partners speed dating style! The result will be uplifting, exhilarating and wholly magical.

Francesco Dimitri is an Italian author living in London, based at The School of Life. To Read Aloud has recently been featured on Radio 4’s Open Book.

Drinks served from 6pm.

All tickets include a glass of wine and a 15% discount on copies of To Read Aloud purchased on the night. BUY ONLINE, IN STORE OR BY PHONING 020 7636 1577.
