Renegade Readers – April 28th 2016

A bit of a different meeting as poet/song-writer Peter Branson came and read/performed in the last hour.

Before he came we had the usual eclectic mix of pieces which sometimes synchronised as quite often happens.

Pieces read included:

Tim Diggles – Doris Stories from his Tea and Blood collection

O B Bunce’s poem – Don’t (cannot find any info)

Teresa Hooley’s poem – Little Things

The Ladybird Book of Mindfulness

Carol Ann Duffy‘s poems December and Mrs Darwin

E.F. BensonMiss Mapp

Wislawa Szymborska‘s poem – Bodybuilders Contest

Doreen Ravenscroft’s poem – Day by Day

Peter Branson read and sang from his new Lapwing Poetry collection Hawk Rising. He has a reading and music event at The New Victoria Theatre  on Monday May 16th 2016 with all profits going to the Cystic Fibrosis Charity, and should be a great evening.

The next Renegade Readers meeting will be at 11am on 26th May at Newcastle-under-Lyme Library
