Back to Earth be launched by Patricia Sykes at the Kathleen Syme Library, Faraday St Carlton, Sunday 31 March, 3:30pm for 4pm.

Spanning five decades and more than forty countries, Back to Earth is a tapestry of people and places. The pilgrim poet stumbles through trouble and truth, learning empathy and strength along the way.

Chance and humour merge in this world, culminating in a procession out of left field – a celebration of wanderlust and joy.
