Twelve Words: Extraordinary chapters by four ordinary women.

Deansgate welcomes curator Linda Brogan with authors Carmen Jones, Catherine Proctor and Anthea Cribbin to discuss TWELVE WORDS, the intertwined memoir by these 3 remarkable working class women from Inner City Manchester.

Twelve Words were the secret ingredients that unlocked truths, secrets, confessions and released trauma. Without any formal expressive writing experience, three women born in Moss-side and inner-city Manchester, embarked on an excavation of their lives, sculpted by Linda Brogan, that together fused into a book of self-discovery and pride. It is rippled with pain, anger, violence and compensated with fun, laughter and Manc humour. This book will be beneficial to a whole spectrum of disciplines but its true intent is to reach girls and young women that feel like they are facing the impossible. This one's for you.

Hosted by Kit de Waal, these 5 phenomenal women will discuss their stories and answer audience questions.
