Virago marks Bueno publication with walk for miscarriage charity

Little, Brown staff and other Hachette imprints will take part in a 9km charity walk marking Virago’s publication of Julia Bueno’s book on miscarriage.

Taking place on the publication day of  2nd May, the event will raise money for the Miscarriage Association and anyone who wants to take part is invited to join in. Participants, encouraged to wear blue, will meet outside Carmelite House on London’s Victoria Embankment at 2pm.

More than £1,000 has already been pledged to an online fundraiser. London-based psychotherapist Bueno (pictured) was a trustee of the Miscarriage Association and now runs a support group for the organisation.

Her book, The Brink of Being, is described as a “groundbreaking and essential” study. Th synopsis explains: “Drawing on her personal experience of miscarriage, stories from her consulting room, and interviews with medical professionals, pregnancy loss charities and researchers, Bueno provides history, context and consolation for anyone who has experienced pregnancy loss, or wants to know how to support someone who has.”
