On Monday I took my Bibliotherapy Artist's Book Library to Newcastle where I parked up outside the library and opened the boot to tempt the heavy hearts of Blaydon to share their woes with me in the blazing sun, while I prescribed them some reading relief. I also described and read from some of the wonderful books in BABL to an inspiring visually impaired book group.
On Saturday BABL travelled to London to the Wellcome Picnic in Cumberland Market, where the local Camden Community had a beautiful day in the sunshine sharing delicious food. I managed to gobble a sandwich between bibliotherapy consultations and the constant stream of curious visitors, though the shady oak tree and light breeze kept my woes at bay.
On Sunday I headed to Yorkshire to perform BABL on a super double decker route master bus as part of the Hebden Bridge Arts festival. Despite the fateful football cries from the pub, I was kept busy prescribing artists' books to those who were captivated by words not goals. BABL will be on the bus once more this Sunday 4th July for a free perusal between 2pm - 6pm.
