Lorna Gibb’s Childless Voices, Stories of Longing, Loss, Resistance and Choice, was published, by Granta, on the 7th February, and was launched in Daunts. It was really lovely that so many of our final year students came along and their excitement really added hugely to the atmosphere of the occasion.
There have been a few excellent reviews, but the best so far is this in The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/feb/06/childless-voices-by-lorna-gibb-review
There was also a great feature in the Times Literary Supplement who invited Lorna to write a piece about it, rather than just have a review, because they liked it so much! Similarly, the women’s magazine Red asked Lorna to write a piece, after seeing a review copy, which appeared in Feb’s Red Magazine. There are good few others, too many to list here in fact.
There have also been several Radio interviews, with two more schedules for the near future. Here’s a podcast of an Irish one: https://www.newstalk.com/podcasts/highlights-from-moncrieff/dr-lorna-gibb-author-of-childless-voice
And Lorna’s BBC interviews are available on the Radio iplayer. The foreign rights will go to auction in the late spring and two filmmakers have already showed interest in broadcast rights.
Lorna is currently signed up as a guest speaker at six festivals across the country, and there will be a lot more!
If anyone thinks the book might interest them, it’s available at all bookstores, but is slightly cheaper in WH Smiths online and Foyles at present.
