What’s on offer? In this free talk we will share some of the findings from The Lockdown Reading Project, a survey of public reading habits in the first lockdown months of 2020. In July 2020, we ran a survey of public reading habits, asking people how the first months of lockdown had impacted on what, how and why they read. Nearly 900 people took part in what we believe is the only study of reading during the early Covid-19 period. In this talk, we will share some of our findings. What books were people reading? How did the demands of home-working and home-schooling affect reading habits? Join us to find out!
Intended audience – Teachers, librarians, bibliotherapists, anyone interested in these issues
