Reading, Not Reading Presented by Spiracle Audiobooks

  • This event has passed.
Friday 6th October 16:20 - 17:20 | St Mary’s Church

Hearing a good reading is thrilling. This event reveals what makes a reading just that – thrilling.  We’ll learn how the reader can transform the text and bring all the atmosphere, character and meaning to it – alongside the perils of overdoing it, giving inappropriate emphasis or unnecessary drama, mispronunciations or faltering accents. We will be in the hands of brilliant, dextrous actors who intuit what the listener hears; who involve us, asking us to read to ourselves and then to hear the same piece read, helping us realise the differences while discovering deep associations and resonances.

Spiracle Audiobooks is a new, independent audiobook platform offering a fantastic selection of fiction and nonfiction from around the world while championing writing published by the UKs’ independent and small presses.

Our roots are in the Isle of Wight and we are delighted to be part of this year’s Literary Festival with Reading, Not Reading.
