Thanks to those who braved the elements last night to come along to the Bristol Literature Festival meets Bristol Women’s Literature Festival Salon.
It was a lovely evening full of inspiring women’s voices.
We also heard readings from Toni Morrison’s Sula, and Vik Shirley and Helen Shepherd shared their own poems. Dawn May brought along her self-published book about explaining Parkinson’s disease to her grandson.
As is tradition at Salon events, we finished with a bit of Sylvia Plath reading Lady Lazarus, using the never-fail method of putting my phone in a glass to amplify the sound.
Thanks to Spike Island for the venue and Bristol Literature Festival for the collaboration.
