Enjoy an afternoon of poetry with Jo Bell
Admission free - no need to book
Free tea/coffee & cake available

You might recognise her from the Nationwide adverts; now, as part of the Bromsgrove Festival, the award winning poet, Jo Bell, comes to Bromsgrove Library. Jo will be reading her work, including extracts from her Radio 4 docupoem, Slow Machine and especially for the afternoon, some previously unheard new poems.

Jo is an entertaining speaker, ‘lively, sexy and deft’ according to broadcaster Stuart Maconie. She lives on a narrowboat and writes about her life on boats, and her career as an archaeologist. Her global workshop, the 52 project, brought hundreds of poets together to write in a ‘virtual village’. Jo’s how-to books, including How to Be a Poet and 52: Write a Poem A Week are bestsellers. One of the poets invited to Buckingham Palace as a representative of the country’s finest, the outgoing poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy calls her ‘one of the most exciting poets writing today'.
