With Valentines creeping closer we’re taking up some suitably romantic weekend reading as recommended by Practice Mentor Amanda – Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd.
This week we’re sharing that loving feeling by delving into our anthology A Little, Aloud With Love. Practice Mentor Clare is back with another recommendation and a reflection on how it’s been received in a Shared Reading group.
This week’s recommended read comes from our Reading Resources Intern, Nikki Gallagher, who suggests Grace and Mary by Melvyn Bragg.
As the world rushes towards Valentines Day in a flurry of reds and pinks and heart shaped balloons we thought we’d pause for thought. Over the next week members of our Reader family will be reflecting on their favourite extracts from the A Little, Aloud With Love anthology.
This week’s Featured Poem comes from Percy Bysshe Shelley. Lift Not the Painted Veil is a popular poem in Shared Reading and here a member of our London team shares her reflections.
