The Reader Magazine Subscription

The Reader Magazine Issue 71 Image

The Reader magazine is the voice of The Reader, a national charity bringing about a Reading Revolution so that everyone can experience and enjoy great literature, which we believe is a tool for helping humans survive and live well. Through our global Shared Reading movement, powered by 1,000 volunteers and many partnerships, we bring thousands of people together every month through weekly reading aloud groups. We use literature to connect people to themselves and others, develop a shared language for our inner lives, and spark the social and personal change needed in the world.

Please note that The Reader Magazine is a biannual publication. During your annual subscription, you will receive the next two issues of the magazine to be published sent to you directly by post. Your subscription payment is inclusive of postage and packaging.

If you would like to purchase a single copy of a previously published issue, you can do so here.
