Today we were delighted to welcome Alison Brackenbury as special guest reader to Siver Street Poetry and Spoken Word.
Alison read from her latest book ‘Aunt Margaret’s Pudding’, which mixes poems about her family and childhood with recipes from Alison’s grandmother’s oilskin notebook and a prose account of her grandmother’s life.
The reading was as delicious as it sounds and was supplemented, as ever, by varied open mic offerings from those present.
Alison was pleased to go home with an empty book bag, having broken all Silver Street records for the sale of books by a guest poet!
Silver Street Poetry and Spoken Word takes place on the first Friday of each month, at The Station, Silver Street, Bristol BS1 2AG. Our next get-together is on Friday 4th January 2019 at 12.30pm, and the entry charge is £3 or what you can afford. Do come along, bring one of your poems, bring one written by someone else, or simply bring your ears.
