Launch of 'Dorset Voices', Bournemouth Library/Bournemouth Festival of Words

Paddy Hughes and Louisa Adjoa Parker


Jim Aldhouse

I was delighted with the successful launch of "Dorset Voices" at Bournemouth Library last night.

It was a  full house, and all the readings were extraordinarily entertaining and professional.

Here's a list of the contributors whose work was showcased last night:

Robin Daglish, Claire Wyburn, Janet Hancock, Timmy Crump (read by Louisa Parker), Pam Kelly, Helen Pizzey, Valerie Bridge, Judy Bannon, Maya Pieris, Janet Gogerty, Gail Aldwin, Phil Mullane, Patrick O’Neill, Margery Hookings, Jim Aldhouse, Anne Clegg, Paddy Hughes, Geraldine Farrow.

The editors wish to thank them all for coming to the launch and for participating. Congratulations all round!

Thanks too, to other contributors and members of the public who came to listen, to Roving Press, Bournemouth Library and Bournemouth Festival of Words.

A pity I forget to mention Shakespeare, on his birthday. Chronia Polla!
