Durham Book Festival - Launch of two new publications

Stripping The Blackthorn - Lindsay Balderson
"This is a remarkable collection as it reminds us that terror and beauty live in the same
world. Stripping the Blackthorn opens our eyes to the shadows in our lives, none darker than
the vaults in the minds of torturers. Love is celebrated as the fruit of the thorn, as it should be."
SJ Litherland

Collecting Stones: an anthology of poems and stories inspired by Harehope Quarry,
by Vane Women and Others with illustrations by John Longstaff
"A disused lime quarry reclaimed by nature and invested with new human activity contains a deep bed of metaphor. These writings and images are the riches won by working it." Steve Dales.
