Then from 1pm to 2pm, former missionary and successful poet Alison Stedman signed copies of her latest published collection of poems, Raised from Dust.

P. A. Kennan herself struggled for many years with clinical depression, eventually leading to her contemplating suicide. However, as she began to investigate the root of her depression, she discovered a key to healing, for herself and for others.
Kennan summarises the known causes and common treatments of depression, then guides the reader through the relevant emotional and spiritual issues, providing practical insight that can lead towards recovery.

In this collection of poems, Alison takes us on a journey around the world, from the familiar sight of a homeless man on the streets to the wonders of Asian countryside and culture. With sentiments echoing Ecclesiastes, she mourns the transient nature of our lives and all that we see around us. She then flips the coin and explores birth and rebirth, leading to a hope that transcends our temporal existence here on earth.
