Demeter and Her Daughter

Demeter and Her Daughter

We are doing something a little different this week. Instead of writing our weekly blog, we are presenting this story in the form of a short film.

The story of Demeter’s search for Persephone is one of our favorite myths – we are always awe of how a a mother’s love for her child can change the world, and in this story Baubo (the very woman we named our bookshop after) made her only known appearance.

We hope you enjoy the video. Please do let us know if you think we should make more!
