Shore to Shore Poetry Tour from Picador

Well that title is a bit of a tongue-twister!

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Independent Bookshop Week (18th - 25th June 2016) Picador will be running a 14 day poetry tour with bookshops around the UK, and tickets go on sale today!

Running from 19th June - 2nd July, poets will be coming to a independent bookshop near you, including Carol Ann Duffy, Jackie Kay, Imtiaz Dharker and Gillian Clarke.


"When  I  approached  my  publisher  Picador  with  the  idea  of  touring nationwide  with  a  group  of  fellow  poets,  working  in  collaboration  with independent bookshops, I was delighted by their enthusiastic response and that of the Booksellers Association," Duffy said. "It is my belief that there is not a writer nor a reader in the land who is not passionate about independent, local bookshops; Shore to Shore will celebrate both our national art form and our wonderful  independent  bookshops,  so  often  the  cultural  heartbeat  of  their  local  communities."
