Bringing joy of reading to the physically challenged and celebrating different cultures

By Ke Jiayun


Reading is not only allowing words to touch one's eyes but also one's heart. Everyone can enjoy the charm of reading, no matter if he or she is able-bodied or disabled.


On World Book Day, which falls on Sunday, a local barrier-free reading project "Vision Beyond Sight: Celebrating a Year of Inclusive Reading in Shanghai" was launched with its first inclusive reading salon at the Sinan Mansions.


This year-round project, jointly organized by Shanghai Daily and Shanghai Disabled Persons' Reading Committee, aims to invite people from all over the world to learn about the exchange of Eastern and Western culture, as well as seeing how the disabled live in the new era.


Meanwhile, the project also shows how the city takes care of those physically challenged, especially their cultural life.
