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!
"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."
