STORY TELLING

Books to read to grown-ups in To Read Aloud by Francesco Dim­itri

The Simple Things - - FRESH | NOVEMBER THINGS -

In child­hood there is noth­ing love­lier than hear­ing a story be­ing read aloud, but it’s a com­fort that’s mostly for­got­ten in adult­hood. Francesco Dim­itri is de­ter­mined to re­vive this age-old tra­di­tion with this col­lec­tion of ex­tracts, short sto­ries and myths by dif­fer­ent au­thors – from Lewis Car­roll to Joyce Carol Oates – cho­sen with the idea of fos­ter­ing re­flec­tion, med­i­ta­tion and mind­ful­ness in the reader and the lis­tener. Each piece is short – they’ll take 15 min­utes at most to read. They tackle ev­ery­thing from love and loss, chaos and na­ture, to com­pan­ion­ship and com­fort, work and won­der. Af­ter all “shar­ing sto­ries is what makes us hu­mans hu­man”. ( Head of Zeus)
