Friday 6th September 2019
University of Roehampton, London
9:45am – 5pm
Their aim this year is to share some of the brilliant reading projects in prison but also to explore and debate the obstacles on both sides – organisations trying to run reading initiatives and the prison staff who make them happen.
The day will include two panels: “Wading through porridge? Why prison reading projects work – or don’t” and “Working with words: from canteen sheets to Charles Dickens.” There will also be hands-on workshops on areas that Prison Reading Groups may want to explore: philosophy, drama, poetry, family reading, working with emergent readers, managing tricky members and moments.
