This is a unique opportunity to hear Lou speak on this interesting topic. Lou’s presentations are always insightful, humorous, practical, and full of everyday wisdom and ideas for parents to take home to help children to flourish.

Day: Tuesday 19th June at 7.30pm to 9pm

Venue: The Iona School, 310, Sneinton Dale, Nottingham, NG 37DN

“Thank you so much Lou, I left feeling confident that I could use these practical and transformative ideas straight away to make a difference to our family. It’s day four after hearing you speak and we are already having more fun, more magic and more love.” Georgie Williams (parent).

Lou’s books will be available at the event £14.99 (cash only), and from all online book sites, worldwide and Steiner-inspired stores.
