book fairies in bath - how to cure a ghost

The Book Fairies celebrate Poetry with How to Cure a Ghost

Book fairies in the UK were happy to hide copies of the beautiful poetry collection How to Cure a Ghost on National Poetry Day!

Fairies around the UK found some great spots to hide this book! Our book fairies in Bath were especially busy, finding billboards where the book was being showcased!

About the book:

A poetry compilation recounting a woman’s journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, confusion to clarity, and bitterness to forgiveness 
Following in the footsteps of such category killers as Milk and Honey and Whiskey Words & a Shovel I, Fariha Roisin’s poetry book is a collection of her thoughts as a young, queer, Muslim femme navigating the difficulties of her intersectionality. Simultaneously, this compilation unpacks the contentious relationship that exists between Roisin and her mother, her platonic and romantic heartbreaks, and the cognitive dissonance felt as a result of being so divided among her broad spectrum of identities.

The book fairies popped an official sticker on the book, where possible wrapped it up in ribbon, and hid them in plain sight… hoping for a lucky finder very soon!

A book fairy travelled from Australia

We were even lucky enough to call in help from Australia! This travelling book fairy hid copies at the Natural History Museum and the V&A, before heading to Covent Garden market 🙂
