Poems to Make Grown Women Cry and Bedtime Stories for Grown Ups

The perfect addition to our Sharing Stories theme for 2017. Following the success of their anthology Poems That Make Grown Men Cry, the historian and film maker father-and-son team, working with Amnesty International, ask the same revealing question of 100 remarkable women, and we’ll read the results which range from war and peace, to the beauty and variety of nature. Ben will also explore the science of sleep but why we endlessly tell stories, even to ourselves, as we dream.
