FREE Open Reading Rooms for Older People

(12 Places Maximum for each session)

Picture for blog story Do you enjoy a great story?  And a good conversation?  Then join us in a Reading Room.

Reading Rooms and Eason’s Belfast are joining in partnership to provide a programme for older people to celebrate Positive Ageing Month in Belfast. We are a nation of storytellers and we all love a good story. Stories are how we make senses of the world and learn about each other and indeed find out who we are as individuals. You don’t have to be a reader to join in, just come and listen and let us know your thoughts on the stories we will introduce you to. There are two open events for older people and a special open intergenerational event on the lead up to Hallowe’en for grandparents and their grandchildren. If you love stories come and join in the conversations

To book please email: donegallplacebooks@easons.com
