The Nuisance Child by Steven Roy Burton
The new book by eccentric and prolific poet, Steven Roy Burton. This book is currently a Faraway Bookshop exclusive following the author's completion of our Creative Writing Group. The story follows Charlotte into her dizzying story of hallucinations and her battles with her psychosis as she struggles to regain the clarity of her mind taken by an odd manifestation; known only by the name...Bob.
Positively Negative: Putting Discouraging Thoughts to Good Use by Laurie Kennedy
A book written by, The Faraway CIC Director, Laurie Kennedy. He wrote this book as a visual way to tell stories about negative thoughts that affect a lot of autistic people. It also explores the positives we can get from elements of negativity. Follow Li, Kamya, Hanna and Harry as they challenge their negativity monsters. Are these monsters to be feared? Are they to be beaten down? Or maybe they need something else from you.
