If you’ve been up to date with our releases you’ll know that in August we released Happiness Is An Art Form by Swedish-Scot poet Agnes Török. Did you get it? Perhaps directly from her at the Ed Fringe? Did you like it? Do you want to see Agnes at your local poetry night?
You might be able to help!

About Happiness is an Art Form:
Happiness Is An Art Form is a reflection on what makes our lives good and how we can best equip ourselves to get through difficulty – trauma, mental ill health, illness, you name it. Török speaks about them all, with joy, clarity, and humour.
This is a book about you. It is an invitation to think about your life – your good times and your bad, your joys and your challenges. To think about if there is anything you could do, big or small, that could add more joy to your life. Anything that could make the challenges a bit more manageable. Don’t worry, you’ll have a whole book to help you make up your mind.
It is time to buy the book and start.
