Poets Remember at BRLSI

Sue Boyle writes: On the evening of Wednesday 18th November (note – 7pm) there will be a very special Poetry Cafe in the Duncan Room at BRLSI. Twenty poets from the Bath Poetry Cafe will be reading their own poems on the theme of Remembrance. Passages from Gorecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs will act as preludes and interludes in the readings and there will be a one minute silence at the readings’ end. This Cafe has been organised by three founder members of the Bath Poetry Cafe – Caroline Heaton, Frances-Anne King and Tracy Wall – and we are all especially pleased that so many Cafe poets will be taking part. As well as many of the Cafe’s regular poets, we are delighted to be welcoming new readers John Terry, Bill Beck, Alana Farrell, Gary Rowland and Peter Charters. We are also very pleased that poets are now coming from so far afield to read at the Bath Poetry Cafe. This month, as well as our Bath poets, we have readers from Bristol, Stroud, Colerne, Taunton, Devizes, Glastonbury and Frome. Bath Poetry Cafe is supported by Arts Council England.
