Postcard: Out Of Place - 2003

Image of postcard promoting the launch of Lois Keith's book, Out Of Place, Manchester, 2003

‘Out of Place’ was written after Lois Keith won the Sue Napolitano Award for Disabled Writers. The award was launched in July 1999, offering £10,000 for a disabled writer to produce work exploring disability as its main theme.
