....tomorrow (Thursday), if for only one day this year. Douse yourself in poetry. Curl up with a poetic tome in solitude or better still join in a National Poetry Day event. This year the theme is HOME.
Macc library are hosting a full day of poetry. Join local people reading their own or their favourite poems in Poems Aloud on Thursday 7th October between 10am and 6pm.
They will be reading poems old and new throughout the day in their very own Poets' Corner.
Make sure you get along at 11am to hear surprising and charismatic performance poet Dominic Berry.(see above).
We'll be there and we might even read a poem too...
And finally we raise a glass to Jo Bell and wish her well for what must be a frenetic day ahead seeing as she is the coordinator of National Poetry Day.....
