On October 10, Waterstones are hosting an evening with Séamus Fox, a formerly homeless man and Emmaus companion, who has written ‘No Homeless Problem and other poems‘. We hope the evening will bring attention to the issue of homelessness as well as the book itself.
Séamus wrote ‘No Homeless Problem and other poems” to give an “insight into how different people may become homeless and how they attempt to survive on the street. I want people who have never been homeless or who have never known homeless people to search in their souls for shreds of compassion.”
