What is Shared Reading?

Shared Reading sessions provide an opportunity for everyone to listen to and read aloud from a wide range of literature. The sessions provide a safe space to discuss difficult topics as well as the opportunity for participants to read from selected excerpts and share their thoughts and experiences.
