A review of a new book by Jeanette Greaves… I’ll be reviewing Ransomed Hearts, the second book in the Ransomed Hearts series.
An interview with Elaine Bousfield… I first interviewed Elaine (with Judy Morris) back in December 2019. Elaine is a counsellor, founder of KOOTH.com (now Kooth PLC) and CEO and founder of ZunTold, based in Manchester, publishing fiction and non fiction focusing on enabling readers to explore their mental health and life challenges. ZunTold are developing a digital guided bibliotherapy service and have been working in Salford alongside third sector organisation START to pilot this approach. In case you’re curious, Elaine and Judy’s Apocalypse Books were New Selected Poems 1957-1994 by Ted Hughes, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, and Kenyon Calthrop and Janet Ede’s teaching guide, Not ‘Daffodils’ Again! Teaching Poetry 9-13.
And What Are You Reading?… the section of the show where I ask writers about the books they’re reading at the moment. This week I’ve got another selection of reviews and recommendations. And if you’re a writer who’d like to take part, check out this post with details of how to join in!
Plus… you can hear my round-up of news from the World of Words. If you’ve got a news story you’d like to share, please use the News Form to submit it to the show.
Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
