Leeds Book Club has been participating in the Arts and Minds Network‘s Sharing Stories Project for the last few years.
This project has been set up to raise awareness of mental health; learning difficulties and autism through – in our case – the depiction of these in works of fiction.
In previous years, we read and discussed books – you can find the list below – however, in 2015, we decided to broaden our scope.
Tom of the Arts and Mind Network and I will be meeting up every few months to discuss books, music, TV, films, comics and anything else we can think of, with an eye towards increasing awareness about mental health.
If you are already subscribed to the Leeds Book Club podcast, then #CulturallyMinded episodes should start appearing automatically soon! 😉
The LBC podcast can also be found on iTunes here if you fancy subscribing!

Tip 01 – West Yorkshire Sculpture Park or Hyde Park or any green place!
