Recommended Reads: Buffalo Soldier by Tanya Landman

Our latest Recommended Read comes from Joe Mackrell, who joined us at The Reader Organisation at our HQ in Liverpool for work experience last week. We couldn’t let him go without sharing his favourite book of the moment, a historical novel charting the experiences of a young African-American slave set free at the end of the American Civil War. 210 more words

Volunteers Week: Volunteering at Calderstones Mansion

Since we set up home in Calderstones Mansion House, there’s been lots for us to do – not only in running shared reading groups and a range of activities for the local community, but also get a thriving cafe up and running, hold a series of seasonal events from summer fairs to Christmas grottos and make sure that the Mansion is a warm and welcoming place to be, with its doors wide open (Monday-Friday as well as the occasional weekend). 842 more words
