Join us at the launch event for Sophie Herxheimer’s The Listening Forest, the latest Poetry Café exhibition, presented by The Poetry Society, with readings and a talk by Sophie.

The exhibition features the drawings, prints, paper cuts and poems she produced during her residency with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Northants, including the inky stories about the woods she collected from people in the area. Sophie drew these stories ‘live’ and everyone who provided a tale was immediately furnished with a same-size photocopy.

The book, The Listening Forest, £12, will be on sale during the show. It is also published in a stunning limited edition, 30-metre, concertina book, made at Henningham Family Press, London, £450.

Entry is free but if you would like to come, please RSVP to: [email protected]..

The exhibition runs from Monday 2nd November 2015 – Thursday 4th February 2016.
