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
Our final video for Arachneversary, Jennifer A McGowan talks about her poetry collection With Paper for Feet – covering Shakespeare, myth and fairytales, 16th century witchcraft and much more, with readings.
With the booktrade suffering, we wanted to make it as easy for you to get lovely things to read as possible, so we have worked very hard to get these in the vitual shops for you. Thanks to Inpress for organising conversions and uploading!
Jennifer A McGowan was one of the guest poets at Words & Ears in Bradford on Avon last week. here are the videos – this was the penultimate date in the With Paper for Feet tour, final outing is Cheltenham’s Buzzwords, on 30th April, I won’t be there to video so these are the final records of what has been a brilliant tour.
The final two dates for the With Paper for Feet tour are Thursday 30th March, at Words and Ears at the Swan in Bradford On Avon, and Sunday 30th April at Buzzwords at Exmouth Arms, Bath Road Cheltenham: two events run by others, in pubs!
Jennifer will be reading, and we’ll be along to support her in Bradford on Avon, but she’s on her own for Cheltenham. So if you are local to Bradford on Avon or Cheltenham, come along and say hello, and other supportive noises. Small entry charge and Open Mic at both events.
Jennifer A McGowan retells tales pretty much non-stop in her poetry. Here are her takes on Fairy Tales, the Bible, Shakespeare, Nigerian Folk Tales and Greek Mythology. These and more are available in With Paper for Feet
Jennifer is reading at Words & Ears in Bradford on Avon on 30th March, and Buzzwords in Cheltenham on 30th April.
