Patron of Reading: Haringey Chapter rounded off another inspiring National Conference for the Patron of Reading Scheme.
The conference in Manchester showcased a huge range of approaches to promoting reading for pleasure. We heard from authors, storytellers, teachers and librarians. We were shown the power of film and poetry and the importance of book choices in promoting reading for pleasure and empathy. We even took part in a simulated patron of reading workshop with the 2 Steves (Vikings, Shakespeare and Chihuahuas – all before 10am…)

It was a real privilege to represent Haringey and demonstrate the wonderful networks of collaboration we are building through Patron of Reading: Haringey Chapter. We look forward to the 2017 conference. Thanks to Tim Redgrave and Jon Biddle of Patron of Reading for another conference that was thought-provoking, invigorating and fun.
