Blame Montezuma!

 Blame MontezumaChoc-lit anyone? Calling all addicts of chocolate, poetry or both.

Blame Montezuma! is the scrumptious new book of 'choc-lit' poems from Fife-based HappenStance Press, who are longstanding StAnza favourites. As a special event for Book Week Scotland taking place this year from Monday 23rd November, we've brought them together with Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier, who now have a shop in St Andrews, and our favourite coffee shop in town, Zest Coffee and Juicing Bar on South Street, to cook up a feast of an event. Poet and publisher Helena Nelson will be joined by Jenny Elliott, Ross Kightly and others to offer both edible and verse treats.

The event will take place on Thursday 27th November at 6.30pm, lasting about 60 - 90 minutes, and as per above, this will be at Zest, 95 South Street, St Andrews, KY16 9QW. Highland Chocolatier CDT final
