Wish there were more of these stories for you to listen to?
If you’ve been as enchanted by Jean’s stories as we have, you’ll be glad to know we have 8 of them scheduled for you over the course of the festival. We’ll be publishing a new one every day until the penultimate day of the festival, and then leaving them here for you to enjoy. So now tha knaws.
Jean Briggs is also a talented poet, taking slices of everyday life and bringing her wit, humour and compassion to turn them into something quite special. Something of a Yorkshire Pam Ayres, in some ways. We think Jean should have a podcast for her poetry: let us know in the comments if you agree!
