Westminster Library Reading Groups

Bibliotherapy reading groups are groups of people who come together to read passages from good fiction and sometimes non-fiction. After each read aloud passage, there is a pause for comment or discussion, led by the facilitator.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served!

There are five ‘Share a Book’ groups in Westminster
and eight in Kensington and Chelsea. They happen every week at the same time for an hour and a half. Some groups, which take place in a hospital setting, are for one hour.

The reading is aloud.
