A little while ago, Spoonie Survival Kits were kindly invited to attend the book launch of Waves, Jared A Carnie’s debut novel, in Sheffield. I met Jared last year through my spoonie friend Faye, and they’re both the loveliest, most talented people. On the night, copies of Waves were available to attendees in return for donations. These donations were then to be split between Spoonie Survival Kits, and Sophia Fights Lyme. You can find out more about Sophia’s cause here, and donate to help her to fund her Lyme Disease treatment.
During the event there were book and poetry readings from Jared and other published authors, live music, and we got to say a few words about Spoonie Survival Kits too. AND I got to see and spend some time with the lovely Charlotte, another one of my talented friends. It was a fab night, and now, having read Waves myself, I can confirm that this book is going to be loved by a LOT of people. You can purchase your own copy of Waves here, and you definitely should!
We were so grateful to be invited and for Spoonie Survival Kits to be one of the chosen causes for the book launch, and an amazing £200 was raised on the night! Anybody who has followed our story for a while will know how much that money is needed, and it’s helped us to fund our upcoming Christmas Spoonie Survival Kits (more on that soon!). So, from us, this is another massive thank you to Faye and Jared, and everybody who attended on the night and was kind enough to donate… you’ll never know how much we appreciate your kindness!
