‘Contextual: 7’ – Readers for our next event

Coverstory books is delighted to announce our seventh ‘Contextual’ poetry reading event to be held at the end of May: Wednesday 25th May, starts 1930 UK-time.

Here is a list of our readers for Contextual: 7. We are excited to announce that our main reader will be Simon French who will read from his new book The Deadwing Generation.

The Deadwing Generation is a second stand-out collection from Simon French. Perceptive and emotionally raw, French applies his poetry scalpel to the experience of living life in the modern world. 

Praise for French’s Joyriding Down Utopia Avenue from Amazon readers:

“Powerful, surprising – shocking, sometimes funny, often poignant but always thought provoking.”

“surprising, subtle poetry”

“This is a stunning collection. Assured throughout, this is a poet who is a master of his game. The poems conjure a vividly imagined world, often skewering convention.”

Simon is joined by Adele Cordner, who has a book out later this year, Pratibha Castle, and Anne Pelletier-Topping.
