Poetry aid: Bradford's Barbara Howerska raises £150 for food bank
Bradford poet Barbara Hoswerska has raised £150 for a local food bank after staging a reading from her recent poetry collection, and donating all the money raised from sales of her book.
She said: "It was a wonderful evening. I had lots of fun and read 15 poems." Barbara's collection is titled The Widow Witch, and is published by Half Moon Press. The evening was on Wednesday 15 December at the Exchange Craft Beer House, and raised money for Bradford North food bank.
Barbara is the author of two books of poetry published by Half Moon Press, and was an active member of Bradford’s Beehive Poets, before going on to run a monthly open mic called Talking in Tongues.
