We’re excited to launch our online Book Club for Wellbeing and Connection, an opportunity for us to celebrate everything going on through our civil society networks, encourage people to share and learn, discuss the latest thinking and research on reducing loneliness during lockdown, and most importantly, build connections between civil society workers, volunteers, trustees, and those people that their organisation serves.
We want to encourage sharing and learning experiences through the book club, in order to generate a greater sense of social solidarity and togetherness.
The sessions will be facilitated by Kate Shurety, the former Executive Director (now associate) of The Campaign to End Loneliness. Each session will begin with with a short Q&A between the author and Kate, followed by an opportunity for all participants to discuss and share ideas.
Reading the book is not essential for participation – rather, we want to hear your thoughts and experiences of the topic on hand.
Our third book club meeting will take place on Tuesday 25th May at 7pm with Empireland author Sathnam Sanghera.
Sathnam’s latest book explores how imperialism has shaped modern Britain. Join us for a thoughtful and reflective discussion on the topic.
” This remarkable book shines the brightest of lights into some of the darkest and most misunderstood corners of our shared history” James O’Brien
