Leeds Bibliotherapy Groups Present a Free Taster and Information Workshop: Reading Together For Refugees Week
Friday 24th June 2016 1 – 4.30pm 3rd Floor Meeting Room, Leeds Central Library Calverley Street Leeds LS1 3AB
This workshop is designed to give a taste of the inspirational support that bibliotherapy reading groups can offer for refugees and asylum seekers, cementing a sense of community and helping to overcome alienation and isolation. All attendees are very much welcome at this workshop, especially refugees, asylum seekers and those who support them.
This event, put on in partnership with Leeds Libraries, includes a free buffet lunch, an introduction to the reading groups, taster sessions, a roundtable with existing group members and leaders, poetry readings, and a creative writing workshop. It also offers an opportunity to join one of our reading groups, currently running in Central Leeds, Harehills, Little London and Armley. We respectfully ask all attendees to book at this address: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/leedslibraryevents
