Reaching the Stars at Bath Spa University for International Women’s Day TODAY!
I was asked by the charity VOICES (which provides peer support and recovery programmes specifically for women who are experiencing or have experienced Domestic Abuse) to read from Reaching the Stars at the International Women’s Day celebrations at Bath Spa University.
Here I am – with my faithful Medical Assistance Dog, Lola, by my side:
It was a fabulous venue, and I’d like to say thank you to my friends, Ursula for inviting me, Meg for taking some great photos for me, and Kathy for driving me there!
Please note the poems held between my knees. It takes years to learn this technique and carry it off successfully. I can give lessons if required!
Reaching the Stars, Poems about Extraordinary Women and Girls, is published by Macmillan and is written by me, Jan Dean and Michaela Morgan, and is available here.
