Opening Doors to the Future Through Reading, with Redry

José Manuel Lara Foundation

Venue: IES Francisco Giner de los Ríos

The José Manuel Lara Foundation firmly believes that the promotion of reading leads to social transformation, especially among young people. To this end, the students of the IES Francisco Giner de los Ríos Secondary School in Segovia will meet with a writer they have chosen themselves; the poet David Galán Redry, teacher from Valladolid, online poet, and winner of the ESPASAesPOESÍA 2019 award.

The aim is to encourage reading among the students and at the same time explore the idea that books can be used for more than as a source of escape or leisure, that more and better reading can lead them to improve their grades and open doors to a brighter future. The José Manuel Lara Foundation pursues social transformation through reading as it is evident that a young person who reads will gain more knowledge, be more skilled in critical thinking, will have greater possibilities for the future and, therefore, will be happier.
