Bid to promote reading among radio listeners
A COMMUNITY radio station is teaming up with Bristol libraries in a bid to promote reading among its listeners.
Ujima Radio – helped by a £10,000 Lottery Fund award – will be introducing the project with the help of Paulette North, who has a show called Thursday Outlook on the station, which will discuss how people become readers.
Ms North said: "I am really excited about the six-month project. We need to talk about reading, debunk myths and read more for pleasure.
"I hope to make sense of the ongoing and controversial debate of how schools teach reading."

Each week guests from academia, the local community, schools, the library service and businesses, as well as participants from reading groups will discuss and debate issues, such as e-books and how parents can support reading for their children.
Advocates of the new scheme met yesterday at the radio station in St Paul's. They included city council Labour group leader Peter Hammond, Lib Dem council cabinet member for communities Guy Poultney and community activist Abdul Malik.
