I am delighted to be on Durham Book Festival’s commission bill this year, with my project, The World Above. My research centres on the lives of four women, across three generations, living in a colliery village in East Durham, spanning 100 years.

The event on October 7th will be staged in the magnificent Pitman’s Parliament at Durham Miners’ Association.  It will feature a stunning projection installation designed by Newcastle-based production company Novak, a soundscape of women’s voices, and a reading from my creative piece, followed by a panel debate on the future of female activism in the North East of England.
