I Am A Reader: The Exhibition

Worksop Library, Worksop

Time To be confirmed
Venue Worksop Library

Featuring beautiful artwork inspired by the words and thoughts of real readers, this exhibition reflects and celebrates everything that happens when we open a book, and poses the question: is reading creative in itself?

Earlier this year, six writers worked with six groups of adult readers to create a short story anthology, while sharing their individual experiences of being a reader. Notes from these sessions were shared with artist Carol Adlam who chose insights which inspired her as the basis for a series of illustrations.

From what different readers see or hear when they read a book, to what reading means to them, the resulting 22 beautiful illustrations in this exhibition are a striking, poignant and often moving visual interpretation of the reading experience.

The I Am A Reader Exhibition is touring library galleries until 2023. For the full touring schedule click here.
