A Year Of Loving Kindness To Myself with Brigid Lowry

Wednesday 10th November 2021


A beautifully presented and uplifting book of contemplative, wry, sometimes funny essays about living thoughtfully and with care amidst life’s challenges.

Informed by contemporary psychology and Buddhist philosophy, Brigid’s essays offer reflections on everything from friendship to grief, and from gratitude to self-care. 

Beaufort Street books will be in the library selling copies of A Year Of Loving Kindness To Myself on the day.

About Brigid Lowry:

The daughter of a typographer, Brigid Lowry began her writing career by self-publishing two dreadful poems when she was eight. She spent her twenties living in a Buddhist community, veered into performance poetry in her thirties, and subsequently gained a masters degree in Creative Writing before writing eight award-winning young adult books. She is a Zen student, a socialist, a creative writing teacher, an introvert who talks too fast, a drifter and dreamer who loves the world of words. Brigid likes movies, travel, walking and hanging around in libraries. She believes in nectarines, coloured pencils and op shops, and in encouraging others to live with authenticity and joy.
