In April 2020, poet Hannah Stone was invited to become poet theologian in virtual residence for Leeds Church Institute, charged with writing an uplifting and empathetic weekly reflection on the impact the Covid-19 lockdown was having on the communities of Leeds, using her own and others’ poetry as a medium. Week by week Hannah drew on religious ideas, poetry, art and music to map a route through this fast-changing and unpredictable experience. Join Hannah as LCI launches the book based on the blogs and offers it to Leeds as we enter the uncertain times of 2021.
