PRESS RELEASE

‘Life Inna Lockdown 2020 Behind Closed Doors’

Book Out Saturday 11th July 2020
Virtual Book Launch Saturday 15
th August 2020 3pm 5:30pm

The book captures a six-week snapshot of these women’s lives through journals, stories, and poetry. What kept them going? Could they see the light at the end of the tunnel? Who were their support networks? Each to their own on how they coped but writing this book together has given them a sense of empowerment and support for each other.

Discussing ‘lockdown’ during a weekly zoom community social group was just the springboard Veronica Ebanks needed to plant the seed with Dee Bailey for Life Inna Lockdown 2020 Behind Closed Doors.

This ‘must read’ book is born out of Simply Deez Events, (a Luton-based community group) and part funding from the National Lottery. A percentage of the royalties will be re-invested back into local community work and various charities.

Published and sponsored by Marcia Spence, CEO of Marcia M Publishing House who recognised that these women had to open their closed doors and tell their stories!
