Lucia Walker, a writer inspired by her experiences of motherhood, released her third book, A Rosie Week, early in March and has pledged all proceeds from the book to the local NGO Clean Slate.

Walker has previously released books titled Grumpasaurus (2020) and Ray of Brave (2022).

A Rosie Week tells the story of little Rosie as she finds fun and exciting ways to turn every day into an imaginary adventure.

“All three of the books I have written are inspired by each of my children. The first two were my sons, and the new one is inspired by my daughter. These books are for my kids, but I love that I am able to help my community through these.

Although she is currently based in Johannesburg, Walker opted for an East London release for her new book to better accommodate the partnership she has with Clean Slate, an NPO that assists previously incarcerated men and women with rehabilitation and reintegration back into society.

100% of the proceeds of this book will be going to Clean Slate. “I have been blessed with a husband who has been so gracious and financially supportive that I am able to release books without making any profit from them. That’s why I decided to give all the proceeds to Clean Slate. I love what they are doing and I think their work is very important for the community. I am very happy to be in a position to help”.

Walker has a writing background of over 10 years and has worked in the media space as a journalist.

Brian Francis, the founder of Clean Slate, says the messages in A Rosie Week capture the ethos of the NGO.

“Walker is an awesome writer. I’ve had the privilege of reading all three books to my son. In each book, there’s a message for both young and old. A Rosie Week tells me to look at the positive aspects of life which I think is how we should look at life, through the lens of hope and faith.

“For Lucia to partner with us is great, as our mission is to bring hope to our city and A Rosie Week encompasses that message,” he said.

Francis is currently the sole distributor of the book in the Eastern Cape and there is limited stock available. Please contact: info@cleanslate.co.za
