Books Unlocked in the community
In 2015, we expanded Books Unlocked into local communities. Alongside our work in prisons and young offender institutions, we now work with community reading groups, libraries and schools to encourage them to read and share their thoughts on the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted titles.
Participants’ thoughts on the books are then anonymously shared among all reading groups in the area. This allows different communities – whether in a library or a prison – to engage with the opinions and views of others.
