It is necessary to emphasize the importance that books have in each person’s life. And the work that is being released can be used to guide actions aimed at training readers, promoting reading and access to the book.
The Reading Portraits of Brazil 5 shows a panel of different interpretations of the study results. The idea is to provoke a reflection on the enormous challenges, so that the current scenario can be improved.
“We hope that this broad analysis of the research results will inform studies, guide assessments and the formulation of public policies and actions by the government, civil society and the production chain”, says Zoara Failla, research coordinator and organizer of the book.
The book features guests who thoroughly analyze the impact of public policies over the last decade. They also promote reflections on the paths to be followed so that effective advances can be registered in terms of fostering and improving reading indicators.
According to Zoara, the authors have different approaches and insertions in the area of reading and access to books, but discuss the research results from the same perspective, that reading is a tool for unrestricted access to human knowledge, to science, to culture, to the ability to critique and read the world, essential for a democratic and plural society, and that literature awakens empathy for the other.
