About "The Reader's Antidote" Project
We’ve all been there and we know how it feels — the ‘readers’ block’ — where your mind just swims in a sea of books, unsure of a destination. Our new series, “The Reader’s Antidote”, is year-long project that hopes to remedy this by inviting creative minds from all over the world to recommend their favourite book and respond to it in their own artistic ways. We hope this might just inspire you to step into the unknown and enjoy an adventure of a lifetime.
