What is it?
Whispered readings (A cau d’orella) is an initiative aimed at people over 65 with reduced mobility or people who are shielding. It consists of offering these people readings on any topic, through pre-arranged telephone calls.
What kind of texts are read?
The material offered includes short contemporary texts, stories and noir novels. Users can also request other texts.
How does it work?
Each participant can request a maximum of one reading a week. The reading lasts roughly 15 minutes. It is conducted by phone, gradually and in different sessions. A volunteer or a library worker will be assigned to each person using the service.
