I am delighted to present the third in a series of readings from Barbara Harris Leonhard’s debut poetry collection, Three-Penny Memories, A Poetic Memoir, which is due for release on 15 October 2022. In this recording, Barbara reads her poem, ‘The Caregiver’s Craft.’ You can read more about the background to this poem in Barbara’s blog post.
To mark the launch of the book, we will be holding a Zoom Launch Event on 15 October at 17:00 BST (12:00 EDT, 11:00 CDT) in which Barbara will read some poems, and we will talk about the creation of the book. We hope you can join us! Here are the Zoom details:
