WELCOME to this exciting new platform for readers. The full programme of talks, workshops, debates and other events is led by 15 expert speakers, who not only share a passion for reading, but the desire to bring its benefits to the community. Groups with a reading list to share or a project to air are cordially invited to bring these to the attention of the meeting.
The Convention will provide an opportunity for readers and reading groups
Organized by the Books on the Broad Reading Group
"Books on the Broad has developed a ‘novel’ approach to encouraging not just a love of reading, but also of communication, understanding, and friendship."
Big Lottery Fund
Head of South East region
"We wanted to set up the convention in response to the literary festivals which focus on writers and celebrities rather than readers; we felt readers needed a voice as well. Now, in no small part thanks to the award, they will have one."
