Last month the arts editor of local paper, Newcastle’s The Journal asked me to contribute to the paper’s monthly magazine, Culture. I was asked to submit my favourite book choices for one of the mag’s regular features, Reader’s Lives.
I love this regular feature. I think book choices say a great deal about the person. Mine included Middlemarch by George Eliot, Ludwig Bemelmans’ Madeline and Limehaven by Vicky Arthurs.
Vicky has reprinted the article on her blog http://www.vickyarthurs.com/news/ and refers to me as “poet and community arts activist.” I like that and it’s true!
