Poetry Night at The Edinburgh Bookshop
Hello one and all.
I'll be in Edinburgh, 24th of February (next Wednesday) to take part in an event for the UNESCO City of Literature, reading some of my poetry along with other lovely poets (who actually have books to their name ;)).
It's going to be held at The Edinburgh Bookshop, which is 181 Bruntsfield Place. It's from 7:15-9:00pm, and tickets are £5 (which includes wine). If you would like to come along, then you need to book a ticket. To do so, call the shop on 0131 229 9207. :) x

From the oldest bookshop in the world, to the smallest you could imagine, The Bookshop Book examines the history of books, talks to authors about their favourite places, and looks at over three hundred weirdly wonderful bookshops across six continents (sadly, we’ve yet to build a bookshop down in the South Pole). The Bookshop Book is a love letter to bookshops all around the world.
Wednesday 15th October 7:30pm: Waterstones Castle Street, Norwich
