“The wonderful thing about poems is that no matter how many times you’ve read them before, they still feel new if you’re reading them in a live way.” Jane Davis
Jane Davis is changing the way people relate to literature, to each other and to themselves through a shared reading model called ‘Get Into Reading’, which brings small groups together on a weekly basis to read books and poems aloud. Run in care homes, libraries, hostels, mental health centres, schools and prisons Get Into Reading brings literature to where people are.
