Pānui Tahi (Shared Reading)Tuesday, 18 June 2024, 10 – 11:30am
Pānui Tahi (Shared Reading)
Not your average book group! Running monthly on the third Tuesday of the month, our Pānui Tahi (Shared Reading) sessions are small, friendly reading sessions where we experience the fun of ‘Shared Reading’ and enjoy short stories and poetry read aloud over a cuppa. Everything provided. Everyone welcome!

‘Shared Reading’ is a movement that aims to break down barriers between people and literature, create connections and build community. Find out more about these groups and this movement on The Reading Revolution’s website.

There are pauses for kōrero / discussion about the deeper meanings in the text, and what the group thinks about it, as well as pauses for kawhi and tī / coffee and tea, and pīhikete / biscuits!

Shared reading isn’t about what you might already know about literature, nor is it ‘literary criticism.’
It’s people’s personal response to the literature – how their lives and experiences meet and move with the work that’s read aloud.

How it works:

A group of 8-10 participants, one facilitator and support staff meet in the event space at Te Awe Library on the third Tuesday of every month at 10am.
A Pānui Tahi group lasts between 60-90 minutes.
All reading materials are read out loud and the materials used will commonly be a short story and a poem or extract from a novel.
The facilitator reads and pauses for friendly discussions centred on the text, ensuring each participant feels their contribution is welcome.
Refreshments (tea, coffee, biscuits) provided.
Participation is voluntary and free!
