Shore to Shore: Celebrating Poetry and Community with the Laureate and Friends
We’re very happy to be supporting Shore to Shore, a two-week national tour taking place this summer. For 14 consecutive nights Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy will visit local communities to perform alongside Jackie Kay, Gillian Clarke, Imtiaz Dharker, musician John Sampson and a guest local poet in each location.
The tour coincides with 10 years of Independent Bookshop Week run in partnership with local independent bookshops in a range of local venues. There will also be a poetry tour anthology published to coincide with it. You can catch the tour at the following bookshops across the North: Simply Books in Stockport on 27 June; Bookends in Carlisle on 28 June; Forum Books in Corbridge on 29 June. For full details of the tour, see the Pan Macmillan website.
