Howl wondered if there’s anyone like him, the lockdown made him read a lot more, and he also wondered what other people read during the lockdown, and where those readings bring them to?
This sharing section invites people to exchange what they read over the lockdown and pandemic. It could be a book, article, essay, statement etc. In the reading group, the participant who recommended the reading would give a brief of this reading, why do they pick up this? How does it make them feel? Why do you recommend it to the rest of us?
The capacity of this reading group will be around 10 pp.
