Linghams – Brian Bilston book talk and signing
10 October @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
How excited are we to SHOUT about this ! The wonderful Brian Bilston aka the unofficial poet laureate of Twitter!
Bestselling poet and beloved novelist Brian Bilston returns with a brilliant new way to mark and celebrate every single day of the year.
Days Like These contains a poem for every day of the year, each one inspired by an event associated with that day – from the invention of television to World Bee Day; from Ada Lovelace Day to the founding of the NHS; from the death of Agatha Christie to the beheading of Charles I.
Other subjects include: quarks, Morse code, Wittgenstein, Blue Peter, bananas, unicorns, Barbie, the unification of Italy, the Rubik’s Cube, water, Scrabble, Waiting for Godot, the moon, Jane Austen, Esperanto, beer, Matt Hancock, Lego, kindness, Countdown, and Elvis. Each introduction is followed by a poem written in response. A delightful, original way to celebrate every day of the year.
