"We organise and run weekly shared reading sessions for adults in the community, young adults in community programmes and the elderly in Scotland. Part of a book and a poem are read aloud during these relaxed and informal sessions, with an Open Book Lead Reader on hand to help guide the discussion. We also regularly run creative writing sessions for our readers, using the material the group is reading as inspiration to create new writing. We also arrange and fund visits by these groups to the Edinburgh International Book Festival in August, linking the authors we see on the visit to the reading materials we use in our sessions. In 2015 and 2016, Open Book also presented three shared reading sessions for the public at the Edinburgh International Book Festival as a part of their workshop programme."
