Last week I had the privilege of attending the Bristol launch of ‘Play’, an anthology of 150 poems on the subject of having fun.
The anthology was compiled by poets Simon Williams and Susan Taylor to raise funds for a play area on Vire Island in Totnes, in memory of their three-year-old grandson, Reuben, who was killed in a car accident a year ago.
It was an emotional evening at the Golden Guinea, invoking joy, nostalgia and sorrow.
‘Play’ would make a wonderful Christmas gift, for yourself or someone you care for. You can buy your copy from Paper Dart Press or at tomorrow’s launch in Totnes, the details of which are below.
