Read Watch Play 2013 – October : Egoread

The theme this month is all about you and me – we’re going to read biographies, autobiographies and memoirs.

Biographies and memoirs strike at our humanity. Understanding the motivations of another person’s life, empathising with their situation no matter how different it is from your own can create some powerful emotions that stay with you for many years.

From sporting lives, the lives of refugees, the life on the land or the life spent exploring the world, there is so much to experience. From the lives of celebrities to the lives of reality show stars to the little-told story of a family member, their story written and handed down only through their family #egoread can inspire us and help us with out future directions.

Perhaps you’ll read about yourself? Get out an old diary or journal and cringe over the teenage angst you went through – or share it with your teenager?

Indulge yourself in #egoreads and join us on Tuesday 29th of October for a live twitter discussion starting at 8pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.  Use the tags #egoread and #rwpchat as you discuss the reading, watching playing that is your experience of egoreads, so others can join in the conversation too.
