Leave Home Stay

Dr Christine Finn is a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Midweek programme on 21 July 2010 at 9.00 and 21.30.  She will talk about the latest event in her Leave-Home-Stay series.  These events explore the idea of home, and are based around her old family house in Deal, Kent.  Leave-Home-Stay Haiti was inspired by her journey to Haiti in February this year.   Alongside a display of photographs will be a range of other events exploring the themes raised.
