Last Friday saw the launch of Chris Considine’s new book In Search of Home at a gathering of Cinnamon Press poets in Exeter with Jan Fortune and Adam Craig present. Dana Littlepage Smith, who has two Cinnamon collections, and I were reading.
It was a wonderful, intimate event in Dana and Nigel’s beautiful sitting room and it was a delight to hear Chris and Dana’s new poems. Chris’ book is a joy and lives up to its amazing cover so I am looking forward to reading that (now that I’m recovering from electionitis) and I think Dana must have a new book in waiting by the sound of it.
I hope to show you more of this later. And here is Dana’s book
And here are some not great photos of Jan Fortune and of my two friends (sorry). I so enjoyed reading at this event: Jan’s wonderful introductions and very lovely to see poet friends gathered together to listen.
(I was also chuffed that six copies of my own A Handful of Water were sold.)
