Where reading and chat come together

Welcome to Chatabout

Chatabout is a network for emergent reader groups created by The Reading Agency. We’re inviting anyone already running or wanting to run reading groups for adults with literacy needs to join.

This online network is designed for Chatabout members to share ideas, views and information about reading groups for this audience.

Don't forget to also visit Chatabout on the Reading Agency's website for practical guidance, case studies and much more.
