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’ W.I. calendar – she and his wife Angela were members – but she had no notion of the events she was setting in motion.
Expecting only local interest, the ladies were stunned by the media frenzy when the calendar was launched in April 1999. So began an extraordinary two years, as they found themselves in newspapers and on television, chosen as Women of the Year, and touring America. They sold over 300,000 calendars and raised £500,000 for leukaemia research.
In Calendar Girl Tricia shares her experiences of the many funny moments and the sad, about the highs and occasional lows of fame. She describes how the calendar transformed her life and writes with warmth and humour about the remarkable women who – to their surprise – became an international sensation.
