What we do

The Reading Revolution coordinates and trains volunteers and Librarians running shared reading groups.

We read short stories and poetry aloud in small groups then talk about it.

Shared Reading in action

Support our mahi!

Help us professionally train Reader Leaders to run shared reading groups promoting social inclusion – uplifting hearts & minds!

Aotearoa Literary Hub

Each month we feature the work of a NZ or Pasifika writer through the lens of shared reading. We ask our Reader Leaders to use a short story or poem by our featured writer and contribute feedback on how the work was used within their community. We conclude each month with a fabulous event for our community.  Some of these events will feature the writers themselves and they will be held in person or via Zoom. Through ALH we want to strengthen our communities’ connection to our local literature, authors, publishers and booksellers.
