OU/UKLA Reading for Pleasure Conference: The Thread That Connects

We were delighted to host the Reading for Pleasure: The Thread That Connects conference on Saturday 18th June at The University of Cambridge Primary School.

The event, which had been postponed from March 2020, was a fantastic day, drawing in children’s reading and literacy professionals from across the UK.

We were joined by wonderful children’s author Frank Cottrell Boyce, who shared with us his unique journey into writing, and allowed us a glimpse into his own insights to reading for pleasure. We also invited some brilliant teachers to share their experiences of reading for pleasure in their own schools, which was hugely valuable.

With workshops throughout the day, a giant bookshop run by Norfolk Children’s Book Centre and a special lunchtime toast to celebrate Reading for Pleasure’s fifth anniversary, it really was a day to remember.

We can’t wait to see you again in October!
