On Saturday, September 6th, the Society of Friends Meeting House on Queens Road, Leicester, will play host to the launch of Leicester poet D A Prince’s Nearly The Happy Hour, the first full-length collection to be published by HappenStance.
Another Leicester poet, Marilyn Ricci, will launch her HappenStance chapbook Rebuilding A Number 39 there, and of course both poets will be reading and signing books. The reading starts at 3pm, and you’re asked to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to say if you plan to attend. Both are Leicester poets
Later in September, on the 22nd, I’ll be the special guest at the Zest! Open Floor Poetry Night, at Alexander’s Jazz Bar, Rufus Court, Chester, reading poems old and new (and of course selling and signing copies of Troy Town and Making The Most Of The Light). Admission is £3/£2, and the poetry starts at 8pm, and of course you can come along and read your own work in the open mic slot. The evening is hosted by HappenStance poet Gill McEvoy.
