In this episode Dr Sarah McGeown from the University of Edinburgh discusses the relationship between emotions and narrative fiction.
We discuss the feelings that books can elicit and the principles teachers can put into place in school to encourage children and young people to read for pleasure. She also talks about the research she carries out in collaboration with children, young people and teachers to contribute to a better understanding of how to promote reading for pleasure.
