We have hope and we have a lot of it! A whole dictionary full! With the ‘ABC of Hope’ we give Ken letters from the alphabet at random, he chooses a word that begins with that chosen letter and explains how it relates to hope. We also talk about what we can learn from the past and what hopes readers can draw from his historical novels.
The jury and you the public have decided: The winner of ‘Speak up! for Climate’, the big Signals of Hope poetry slam on the topic of climate, goes to TABEA FARNBACHER.
Congratulations and thanks again to all 5 slammers. Thanks for your inspiring contributions!
