Sadly this weekend Simon’s Gran (and one of his most bookish influences) passed away after a year long battle with cancer. This week as a special episode in honour of a rather wonderful woman Gavin and Simon thought it would be nice to repeat an episode from last year where Simon’s Gran, mother and little sister all talk about the books they love and also shows how Dorothy’s influence with books passed on many generations.
Dorothy Savidge 1941 – 2013. A woman who will be greatly missed though her reading and bookish legacy will live on through her children and grandchildren who will pass it on in turn (to anyone they can frankly). We would also like to dedicate this episode to Estelle Kindness, Michael Kindness’ mother who also passed away this weekend.
We will be back in two weeks.
