A POEM FOR EVERY AUTUMN DAY
Posted on September 02 2020
We were blown away by this beautiful poem film at Edinburgh International Book Festival last weekend and we thought you'd love it too. In this unmissable Edinburgh International Book Festival Online event for the 2020 programme, Allie Esiri explores her new anthology A Poem For Every Autumn Day accompanied by breathtaking performances by Helena Bonham Carter, Jamael Westman and Tobias Menzies. This special event is directed by Paul Weiland and features musician Andrew Madingley.
We're sad to see the summer coming to a close but we've found the perfect poetry anthology to remind you of the joys of Autumn. Allie Esiri's gorgeous collection, A Poem for Every Autumn Day will transport you to vibrant autumnal scenes, from harvest festival to Remembrance Day. Perfect as a gift or a treat for yourself, for reading aloud and sharing with all the family, this book dazzles with an array of familiar favourites and remarkable new discoveries selected by Allie Esiri. These seasonal poems – together with introductory paragraphs –all link to the date on which they appear. Poems by W. H. Auden, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Betjeman, William Shakespeare and Christina Rossetti, sit alongside Seamus Heaney, John Agard, Simon Armitage and Carol Ann Duffy. This is a soul-enhancing book to keep you company as the nights draw in.
