Jackie Kay at Beeston Poets, 20th October 2012

We knew she’d be good, and my goodness, she was GREAT! This Five Leaves elf is overcome with hero-worship!

Just in case you couldn’t make it on the 20th, here are some photos I took…

The photos I took of Jackie weren’t that good… I was too busy being enthralled by what she was saying!
