Having recently launched the audiobook of Michelle Penn’s Paper Crusade, we thought we should share the launch videos from the print launch last year. The print version is in our current 10th Anniversary Sale – use the code ARA10JUN to get 50% off until 30th June.
Also, as it is 400 years since the publication of the first folio (folio400), on 21st June (Midsummer! Solstice! actual anniversary of publication of Paper Crusade!), we are revisiting Paper Crusade in company with With Paper for Feet, by Jennifer A McGowan, another poetry collection that takes Mr S’s work and gives them a shake. Odd that both our Shakespeare collection have Paper in the title, it wasn’t deliberate.
Join us at Keats House to hear readings by the authors from both books and take part in a sonnet workshop, if that’s your thing. (There will be cake and you can just come for the readings and celebrate midsummer with us if you want) free tickets
We’ve had 2 launches for Paper Crusade this week, first on line, on Wednesday, then at Keats House yesterday.
We’ve recorded everything, and will be sharing as we get it edited and captioned.
Here poet Michelle Penn and editor Cherry Potts talk about the inspirations themes, characters, processes and decisions that went into the making of the book.
Thanks to Keats House for making us so welcome!
you can buy the book in print from our webshop (we are temporarily out of office stock – thank you lovely people who bought so many copies – but will have more by the end of next week, or can get them sent direct from the warehouse)
Tuesday 21st June 2022 10:30(ish) an experimental (ie we don’t know if it will work) live zoom to our Facebook pageEnchanted Island Books. Michelle will talk about which six books she would save if she was shipwrecked on her island. We will record as well, just in case.
