Following timeously on yesterday's high winds and stormy seas comes a reading of sea poems, from the anthology, Running Before the Wind, published by Grey Hen Press, which has received various accolades:
'A wind-shaken, salt-laden, heartload of poems by women.' Gillian Clarke
'These poets explore all aspects of the ocean from the mundane to the mighty . Go where they take you. Taste the salt in their words.' Diana Hendry
The event which takes place at Zest, 95 South Street, St Andrews, KY16 9QW at 6.00pm on Thursday 23rd October has been arranged by StAnza's Booksellers, J & G Innes. StAnza's own Eleanor Livingstone will be reading along with Lyn Moir, Sheila Templeton and A.C. Clarke, three poets who have appeared at StAnza in recent years. They will each be reading a selection of sea poems from the anthology.
It's a free event, from 6.00pm to 7.30pm, so no need to book, just turn up.
