New Lead Readers

We had an overwhelming response to our call out for new Lead Readers for the Open Book Community Project. After some difficult decisions, we are thrilled to have a super team of talented new Lead Readers on board for the Project:

Esa Aldegheri – The Welcoming and Welcoming Women

Sian Bevan – Rowan Alba

Beth Godfrey – Shakti Women’s Aid

Katherine Mackinnon – Maryhill Integration Network

Colin McGuire – Bethany Christian Trust

Jess Orr – WHALE Arts, Perth Readers and Grassmarket Community Project

Ben Please – Lothlorien Theraputic Community

Calum Rodger – HMP Low Moss and HMP Barlinnie

Em Strang – HMP Dumfries and The Stove

We’re also excited to announce that Jennifer L Williams is piloting a new monthly shared reading + creative writing group at the Fruitmarket Gallery (dovetailing our existing Wednesday group at the Portrait Gallery, led by Anne Hay).
