Places of Poetry book launch

Thursday 1 October 2020, 7:00 pm8:30 pm



The Poetry Society, in association with the University of Exeter and Oneworld Publications, presents the digital book launch of the Places of Poetry anthology, a volume of selected verse from around England and Wales from last year’s hugely popular Places of Poetry project, an interactive map that poets could pin their poetry to attracting 7,000 poems. The map can still be found at www.placesofpoetry.org.uk

This exciting event will sweep the country featuring a wide range of poetry voices reading their work from the anthology, including Fawzia Kane, Jeremy Dixon and Heather Lane and special guest performances from Ian Duhig, Suji Kwock Kim and Jen Hadfield.  There will also be spot appearances from some of the nation’s treasured independent booksellers: The Book Corner from Halifax representing Yorkshire, Nottingham’s Five Leaves bookshop for The Midlands, and Gloucestershire’s Yellow-Lighted Bookshop in Tetbury in the South West.
