Reader Group


Feel better with a book…

Read, listen, and chat about stories in a friendly environment, alongside a trained volunteer from The Reader.

What is ‘The Reader’?

The Reader is an award-winning social enterprise, working to connect people with great literature through shared reading. They bring books to life, creating new, welcoming book groups in which personal feeling is recognised and valued, forming connections between people and literature, wherein everyone can feel more alive.

The Reader volunteers choose quality literature – prose and poetry – and allow reading group members to keep copies of the texts read, if they would like to. If you appreciate the way books make you feel, and would like meet and get involved with others who share your passion, make your voice part of The Reader at Age Exchange.
