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.
