Women’s homelessness is different. This International Women’s Day I’m supporting
@StMungo’s #WhatHomeMeans campaign to help highlight this issue. Share what home

Professor Ruth Livesey joined me on my BBC 6 Music show to discuss George Eliot two hundred years since her birth.
If fellow literature lovers want to help support the 200 year anniversary of George Eliot’s birth, or fund the renovations of George Eliot’s farm Griff House in Nuneaton in time for Coventry 2021 city of culture: get involved with the George Eliot Fellowship.
