The Reader magazine is the voice of The Reader, a national charity bringing about a Reading Revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, which we believe is a tool for helping humans survive and live well. Through our global Shared Reading movement, powered by 1,000 volunteers and many partnerships, we bring thousands of people together every month through weekly reading aloud groups. We use literature to connect people to themselves and others, develop a shared language for our inner lives, and spark the social and personal change needed in the world.
Issue 72 features the stories and poems that got us through lockdown, and staff and volunteers share personal accounts of The Reader at Home. All this as well as an interview with reader, DJ and musician Cerys Matthews, and recommendations for good books for young and old.
