About Bookfeast

 

Who we are

Bookfeast is an Oxfordshire charity which promotes a shared love of reading. Bookfeast is dedicated to encouraging and sustaining the habit of reading, in order to nourish minds and communities.

What do we do

We run reading groups and events, to encourage children and older people to enjoy, share and talk about books.

See our Projects links in the navigation above for more information

Why?

Because reading for pleasure is a magic potion – it enhances emotional understanding, allows us to learn about other people and how to relate to them and to discover the possibilities of the world outside our immediate environment.   For older people it can sustain mental and physical health; our reading groups stimulate conversation, boost confidence, and address social isolation.
