Story Café Special: Fiona Macintosh
27th April, 2017 at 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Put a spring in your step at our lunchtime Story Café, as we travel the world, one tale at a time. Bring along a bite to eat and relax as we enjoy stories and poems from some of the best women writers world-wide.
Story Café is on Thursdays 26th January to 23rd March, 20th April to 4th May, 18th May, 12.30pm to 2.30pm
Rosa of the Wild Grass: The Story of a Nicaraguan Family, is a poignant, gripping true story which spans the last fifty years of this small Central American republic. Writer, artist and human rights campaigner Fiona Macintosh has devoted herself to bringing this family chronicle to life, illuminating women’s courageous struggle for freedom during the Sandinista revolution and beyond.
Fiona Mackintosh became involved in human rights campaigning in the early 1970s and went to Nicaragua after the Sandinista revolution in 1979 to work for popular organisations, primarily as a designer. Since then she has returned many times to record new chapters in the lives of Rosa and her family.
