(VIRTUAL) TALKS BY WOMEN WRITERS
in conversation with michaela kaLOWSKI
Julia Baird’s new book Phosphorescence is the text for our current dark times. Written before the current coronavirus crisis, it is a beautiful, intimate and inspiring investigation into how we can find and nurture within ourselves that essential quality of internal happiness, our own inner, living light to ward off the darkness.
Julia Baird's book on how to cope with tough times could not have been more prescient… Even without a global health pandemic to ground it, it is a stunning book. The Guardian
