 There’s More to Reading Than Words

Unless you have some futuristic dictating technology or someone is reading aloud, if you’re reading this right now, it’s likely that you can read.

Reading is part of our society, we read to learn, we read to stay connected, to keep updated with the world around us – to broaden our horizons. Reading empowers us. But imagine how shut off and disconnected from society you would feel if you couldn’t read?

This Sunday we are so excited to have Anj Cairns the CEO of Shannon Trust – an organisation which supports thousands of prisoners a year to transform their lives by unlocking the power of reading. They inspire and train prisoners who can read to teach prisoners who can’t.

We will also have the wonderful Esi from Poetry Prescribed reading some poems to us.

We’ll also be doing our usual: Mass singalongs to some of our favourite power ballads, an awesome spoken word artist, hearing stories from a number of our community and drinking a vat of tea afterwards.

Please remember, Sunday Assembly London is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please support us if you can to keep it free for those who can’t. You can become a supporter here:
