Leicester Poetry Society

Only just getting round to writing something about last Friday's Leicester Poetry Society Members' Reading, with Alice Beer, Norman Harrington and Anne Kind.

It was a really good night, and I enjoyed hearing all three. Interestingly, both Alice and Anne came to this country before the Second World War, meaning there was some crossover in the themes their poetry dealt with. I bought a couple of Alice's pamphlets, and have been browsing through them since. I particularly like her poems on De Montfort Square, and not just because it's my favourite bit of Leicester.

The next event, on Friday February 5th, is a reading by Alex Pryce, the driving force behind PoetCasting - I'm looking forward to it.
