Sonya Tsakalakis


Sonya is a bibliotherapist with The School of Life and this year was part of the Melbourne Writers Festival, offering bibliotherapy taster sessions in the Dumbo Feather Caravan. Sonya also leads shared reading circles in community settings and hosts literary salons as part of her social enterprise, The Literary Hand.

She started her working life as a genetic counsellor and community educator. As a lifelong reader and as a passionate devotee of ‘slow reading’, Sonya is convinced that the book-drunken life is the only way to stay sane!
