Ten books chosen by the judges of EmpathyLab’s Read for Empathy book collection
Scientific research shows that empathy is learnable and that books are a powerful empathy-building tool. The world so badly needs more empathy, and non-profit EmpathyLab aims to raise an empathy-educated generation, to build a more caring and less divided world.
Here, EmpathyLab founders Sarah Mears and Miranda McKearney highlight ten books from the 2022 collection to give you a flavour of how powerfully books can be empathy-building, in very different ways.
