Ep.7: Lesley Allen and 'The Loneliness of Biddy Weir
We're back with another mini-episode to celebrate creative happenings in Bangor, Northern Ireland! We're absolutely delighted to welcome local author Lesley Allen to the podcast to talk about her debut novel 'The Lonely Life of Biddy Weir'. Set in a fictional seaside town in Northern Ireland, the novel is a stark illustration of the extent to which bullying can affect us all, beyond just the victim and perpetrator. We also open up the chat to Roger Duncan, head of Pastoral Care at South Eastern Regional College, to get his perspective on the book's representation of bullying. 'The Lonely Life of Biddy Weir' is available at all Easons, No Alibis in Botanic, Waterstones, and on Amazon. The Open House Festival Podcast is brought to you by Bangor FM. Listen on 107.9FM and online via the Tune In app. Get in touch: @openhousefest and @_johndarcy
