Only Air book launch

Saturday 4 May 2019, 8:00 pm9:30 pm

1n 1996 Stephen Lightbown, aged 16, went sledging in the snow, hit a tree and suffered a life changing accident which left him paralysed. In 2019 Stephen released his debut poetry collection, Only Air, through which he relives his journey over twenty years from accident to the present day. This is a moving and wry account of what it means to be a wheelchair user and making your journey through life when the way you perceive yourself is often very different to the ways others observe you. Throughout 2019 Stephen will be taking to the road to share his story.

At the launch of Only Air, Stephen will also be joined by Raymond Antrobus, Abi Palmer and Katie Watson. Plus David Turner from Lunar Poetry Podcasts will be hosting.
The Only Air launch will be accessible to all, BSL interpreted and fully wheelchair accessible. This is a space where you will feel welcome. Come be a part of the story.
