Published on Monday 19 September 2016

The pamphlet so many people have been asking for is here – Ten Poems about Friendship has arrived at last!

This insightful selection of ten funny, poignant and refreshingly honest poems deals with the reality of friendship in all its forms. From childhood alliances at school through the angst of teenage years into companionship and the redemption of old age, Lorraine Mariner shows that friendship poems come in as many different shapes and sizes as our friends themselves. Including a new poem by Lorraine Mariner which will both entertain and sadden you with its currency and focus on social media, this pamphlet is the perfect gift for friends old and new.

We’re making a donation to Friends of the Elderly www.fote.org.uk with sales of this title – we think that their befriending services for older people are pretty wonderful.
