Thanks to Nikki Morris, director of Norfolk’s Big C Cancer Charity, The Bell Lap and I are heading to Norfolk this week. It will be wonderful to be speaking to nurses, carers and other health care providers in the afternoon and then reading and in discussion at Kett’s books in the evening.

Wednesday 7 September 5:00 pm
All of us age and change – and we all watch while those we care about go through their own life changes.
Muriel Murch’s new book The Bell Lap (Taylor and Francis) shares human stories of caring and being cared for that will ring true for all of us – and the bigger medical issues such as living longer vs ending well are timely debate for those in the medical profession.
Tickets £3, refundable against the purchase of any book.
Kett’s Books is delighted to be donating profits from the sale of this book to the Big C, Norfolk’s Cancer Charity.
The Bell Lap Stories for Compassionate Nursing Care
Beatrice presenting her book at the Feria del Libro in Buenos Aires
Taking a night train tonight from London to Glasgow. A new adventure for The Bell Lap and I as we go to the Royal College of Nursing Congress and Exhibition 2016. Wisepress is featuring The Bell Lap at 11.20 am through noon on Tuesday June 21 (stand number A9). I have no idea what to expect – a big convention hall and masses and masses of people wandering about. Hopefully some folks will have tired feet and want to sit down and listen to a story or two. Thinking of Beatrice when she presented her book on the A-line subway in Buenos Aires in 2014.
Not everyone will be stopping by Charleston, SC, but for those for whom the Piccolo Spoleto Festival is a stop on their calendar, this would be good. The ‘Nurse Poets’ will be performing on Tuesday, May 31st at 6.30 p.m. at the Dock Street Theatre Courtyard, 135 Church Street, Charleston, South Carolina. Hope you stop on by and enjoy ‘From Wards to Words’.
On Wednesday May 25, Roz Chast author of “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant,” will join me in discussion, talking about “The Bell Lap,” and some of the moments in-between. We will be in the Sculpture Court at The National Arts Club from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. If you are in New York and interested in joining us, please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
This Saturday evening, April 9th, there will be a staged reading of “Doctor Patel Comes to Tea” from the book The Bell Lap at the Bolinas Community Center. Doors open at 6.30 p.m. refreshments will be served beforehand and Davia Nelson of The Kitchen Sisters will talk with Muriel Murch afterwards. This evening also honors Erik Bauersfeld who, aged 93, moved onto other airwaves on April 3rd. Bauersfeld was mentor to many Bay Area radio and film sound professionals and a very early supporter of KWMR.org. Please join us for a very special evening.
Tune in to West Coast Live, airing locally on KALW. 91.7 in the Bay Area, on other NPR stations across the country, and at wcl.org. Every Saturday morning, Sedge Thompson hosts a live radio show with guests of musicians and writers. This Saturday, Muriel Murch and The Bell Lap will be there.
