Reading the Seasons: Books Holding Life and Friendships Together

In the opening event of The Rebound Edition we celebrate bibliotherapy, the ancient practice of reading for therapeutic effect. Bibliotherapists Germaine Leece and Sonya Tsakalakis specialise in finding a book for every occasion and every emotion. Their book Reading the Seasons is a collection of candid letters in which they discuss the authors they turn to for insight, comfort and meaning to help them and their clients confront life’s ups and downs. Join them as they talk with Jennie Orchard about how books can be a refuge and an inspiration.  

This event is supported by the Consulate General of Australia in Hong Kong.

Authors will appear virtually.
