Poet in the City invites you to
Living on an Island
Tuesday 3rd June 2014
Waterstone's, 203-206 Piccadilly, London W1J 9HD

The Drop-In will take place on the first floor, in the poetry section
from 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start

Have you ever imagined being able to escape the madness of rush hour, mobile phones, 24 hour TV?

Whether you identify more with Robinson Crusoe or Long John Silver, share your vision of life on an island, a place where solitude is either heaven or hell and where the imagination could be your best hope for survival.

Escape reality, if only for a short time, and revel in poetry treasures at this month's Drop-In– a haven in the heart of London.

Members of Poet in the City are invited to attend, and to read their favorite poems or poems they have written themselves, exploring the theme.

The drop-in will be hosted by the poet Gerry Skeens.

Regular drop-in events at Waterstone's Piccadilly

Poet in the City has formed an exciting partnership with Waterstone's bookshop, based in their flagship store in Piccadilly.
Waterstones is hosting a whole programme of Poet in the City Drop-In events at the store along with a variety of other live poetry readings.
Poet in the City's regular monthly participatory Drop-In events at Waterstone's are on the first Tuesday of every month.
These Drop-Ins are a fantastic way to reconnect with poetry. Uniquely informal and collaborative, they reflect Poet in the City's open and inclusive spirit and are a great way to attract new people to poetry.
