First Public Readings from Moon in Leo

Many people are curious about writers and their stories. Kathleen Herbert is an extraordinary person, whose intellect and imagination has taken her on many a fascinating and perilous journey.

Probably her last, and in many ways her most perilous journey, is the one that started when she had a massive stroke shortly after finishing Moon in Leo. From losing a week of her life, through teaching herself to read and write again, through consequent years of struggle and depression, to the final effort of gathering together over a thousand pages of typescript into two "bags for life", she kept alive the wish to communicate with her readers. Above all, she wanted folks in Cumbria to have this book.

Mike and I feel very privileged to have helped her fulfill her wish. We are going to be telling her story publicly for the first time this Friday, at Wheyrigg Hall Hotel near Wigton. if you live in North Cumbria, please come! If you would like to book a talk, get in touch with us.
