Calendar Girl by Tricia Stewart
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the real story behind the "alternative WI calendar" (maybe better know to the British public as the "naked ladies calendar") by Miss October, Tricia Stewart, whose idea it was. When John Baker died of cancer, many of his friends in the small Yorkshire village of Cracoe were devastated. During his illness Tricia Stewart had joked with him about creating an "alternative" WI calendar - she and his wife Angela were members. After his death, they were determined to continue and give the proceeds to leukaemia research. It took guts - and a big glass of red wine - for 11 mature women to pose wearing nothing but a string of pearls and a smile. In "Calendar Girl" Tricia Stewart writes honestly about the whole experience: Angela's courage and strength, the enormous strain that fame placed on marriages, friendships and family, being doorstepped by the tabloid press - but, above all, about the positive transforming effect the calendar has had on their lives.
