ME AND TRACEY EMIN, JOANNA TROLLOPE, JO BRAND
What have Vanessa Gebbie, Tracy Emin, Joanna Trollope, Jo Brand, Alan Sillitoe, Lenny Henry, Gok Wan, David Gower and Kate Adie got in common?
Answer, all supporting adopted adults. But far more importantly, we have all contributed something for the book that will be sold on 30th November at a fundraising lunch for AAA-NORCAP. (Adults Affected by Adoption...)
Literary Fundraising Lunch 2009 The invitation says:
Join Kate Adie OBE for drinks on the Terrace and lunch in the Churchill Room, House of Commons 30th November 2009.
Kate Adie OBE, journalist, ex-BBC News chief news correspondent, adopted adult and author of ‘Nobody’s Child’, is the guest speaker.
A book of contributions from writers and artists – including Tracey Emin, Gok Wan, Alan Sillitoe, Joanna Trollope, Clare Short, Alex Wheatle, Benjamin Zephania, Valerie Mason John, David Gower, Lenny Henry, Jo Brand and – er - Vanessa Gebbie will be sold on the day. As well as our original contributions going under the hammer.
Allow me a squeak - Wowee. (Although it is a shrewd guess that Tracey Emin's drawing might raise a few pennies more then summat from moi!)
I am putting a gang together to go, so if anyone would like to join me, plus (so far), two friends (both writers) email me via my website HERE if you don’t know my email addy.
