With The Performance Theatre 2020, the TPT pop-up library went virtual too. With Re/Assemble as the theme for TPT’s first virtual session in September, we asked our community to recommend books that offer a perspective on the themes of ‘recovery and healing’. A capsule selection is shared below.
We will continue to share recommendations from the library, choosing a handful at a time that relate to a common theme. We also welcome new recommendations from our community. Write to us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add your recommendation to our virtual library.
Since The Performance Theatre (TPT) 2018 in Berlin, we have been honouring the power of books to transform; collaborating with the team at Little Free Library on a pop-up TPT book exchange. Captured on bookplates tucked into recommended volumes, these recommendations have sparked conversations both in the moment and months afterwards.
Little Free Library is a non-profit organisation that inspires a love of reading, builds community connections, and sparks creativity by fostering neighbourhood book exchanges around the world. Over the years it has created a hyper-local economy around a very personal kind of value: ideas, comfort and inspiration.
