Castaway Books with guest Zelah Roberts

It was a pleasure chatting to Zelah Roberts, whose debut novel, Midsummer Man was published on 14th July 2021 which was midsummer’s day. Our conversation covered many topics including: how books can help children as young as under fives manage difficult emotions, and the Romantic Poets – ‘When you slow down to focus on a single image in poetry the meaning opens up like a flower.’ A wonderful description by Zelah. I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did.

The books Zelah chose:

1. Home for a Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown

2. Rat Race by Dick Frances

3. The Prelude by William Wordsworth

4.  Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

5. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
