Is reading really a solitary activity?
This series proves the contrary. During these close reading sessions, the moderator will read a selection of literary extracts out loud. The participants will then be invited to react, if they wish to, to the content, the stories, the style. The moderator will animate the discussion and share her perspective on the questions raised.
Girl, Woman, Other
