Reading Aloud in Britain Today (RABiT) is a two-year project examining whether, where, how and why adults today may read out loud rather than in silence. This regional community event in Edinburgh will examine the findings so far.
The RABiT project explores contemporary reading aloud practices and what they mean for how we understand, research, teach, use and celebrate reading in the early twenty-first century.
