The Homeless Library - Introduction

Jeni McConnell writes:
Thursday was a very new day; a day of new experiences, new people and 
a new place.

I drove over to The Wellspring in Stockport to work with Lois Blackburn, 
one half of arthur+martha for their project, The Homeless Library.  
The Wellspring centre is a charity organisation which provides 
help and support for people who have become homeless.

Lois and Philip are working here with people who visit the centre, 
gathering stories of lives past and passed, spending time quietly listening 
and carefully documenting the words of others. Checking, making sure, 
being careful that the written words express the story as it is given.
