Performing with fiddle player Ruth Angell, Liz Berry weaves her unique magic with extracts from her spellbinding verse novel, The Home Child, telling her great aunt’s personal and at times harrowing story, as one of thousands of orphaned children sent to Canada to work as indentured labourers and domestic servants over half a century.  Adapted for Radio 4, lauded in the Guardian, Times, Telegraph and Radio Times.  

Forward Prize and Writers Prize 2024 winner Liz has featured many times on television and radio and is a frequent speaker at festivals all over the UK.
