Welcome to ABR's Roving Blog, To complement our burgeoning coverage of the arts, we have created the Roving Blog. Every couple of months we will appoint a new blogger to write about, well, all manner of things – from books and theatre to politics and society – anything that takes their fancy, really; in ways that will engage our diverse, enquiring readers. The blogger will present at least four substantial posts during his or her tenure, some of which may appear in the print edition; and will also engage with our readers through social media. We’re delighted that Fiona Gruber, who will be well known to ABR readers, is our inaugural blogger. Fiona is a journalist and producer with twenty years’ experience writing and broadcasting across the events. Her interests are multifarious. Keep an eye on our website – and expect the unexpected!
