Reading for Oxfam, London

Readings don't get any better than this one coming up in London, in support of Oxfam on the 1st of December (my birthday!) - just under three weeks away:

Oxfam Christmas Poetry Reading hosted by Todd Swift.
Oxfam is very pleased to be featuring six fine poets, from America, England, Ireland, and Scotland, with special guests Bloodaxe poet Jen Hadfield (TS Eliot Prize winner) and Picador poet John Glenday (Grain) headlining. Other poets reading are: Barbara Smith (Ireland); Sheila Hillier (England) and two visiting Americans, Dante Micheaux and Michelle Boisseau. This event will be ticketed. Tickets £5, concessions £3. Tickets available in advance from the shop or by phone: 020 7487 3570.

The observant among you might have noticed something a wee bit 'odd' about the line-up... :)

You're not a poet really but a word detective and you've been working under cover all this time?

Where is it and at what time, Barbara? If I can get flight clearance, I'd like to attend.

BarbaraS said...

Rachel - darn my cover is blown!

Dick, it's December 1, 2010, from 7.30 pm, at Oxfam's Bookshop 91 Marylebone High Street, London W1, near Baker Street tube. You should phone and reserve tickets, if you think you can go because it's likely to sell out very quickly. Phone: Telephone : 020 7487 3570. Email: oxfammarylebone@hotmail.com - It would be magic to meet you there, if you get clearance to go!
