I should like to thank Dario and Marit of Le Bookshop. Montpellier for their invitation to read from my book The Toga and The Rose at this year’s La Comedie du Livre. I am delighted to be the only English speaking poet reading at the event.
Le Bookshop is a delightful place to explore books and enjoy a delicious coffee in a convivial atmosphere. Le Bookshop is host to readings and other activities throughout the year.
La Comedie du Livre is the most important literary event outside Paris and this year it is dedicated to Scandinavian Authors. There will be readings and book launches and exhibitions with a Scandinavian flavour. A great opportunity to become familiar with some excellent writers. There will writers from other parts also and I am delighted to be honoured with my own poetry reading at Salle Petrarque on Friday afternoon at 4.pm. I will read from my new book The Toga and The Rose. Some poems have been translated into French and one poem ” Poetry” will be read in a number of different languages.
