This Midsummer Day, following the resounding success of her intimate poetry evenings at the National Theatre and Bridge Theatre award-winning poetry anthologist, Allie Esiri celebrates the release of her new book, A Poem for Every Summer Day.
Special guest readers Alexander Armstrong (Armstrong & Miller, Pointless, Classic FM) and Kate Fleetwood (Tony & Olivier award nominee, Macbeth, London Road) will transport you out of the year we have just had and into the warm embrace of summer.
Curated and introduced by Allie, expect poems that move us, entertain us, and make us laugh. Aimed at all ages, Allie’s anthologies have been best books of the year in The Times, New Statesman and The Observer. Amongst many recommendations, A Poem for Every Day of the Year was chosen as the castaway book on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, and A Poem for Every Night of the Year won the IBW 2017 book award.
"Esiri’s happy band proves poetry is alive and kicking…Auden once wrote poetry makes nothing happen. Esiri seems determined to prove this wrong.” The Telegraph
"Allie Esiri, who eloquently introduced each reading, left everyone wanting more.” Hay Festival
