Surprise visitor and parcel force
March 4, 2009
We had a surprise visitor to the SPL yesterday. Remember we blogged about picking poems, and I mentioned how delightful it had been to read
J O Morgan’s Natural Mechanical (CB Editions)? I picked these 20 lines for the Scotsman poem of the week and having seen it, J O Morgan paid a visit yesterday. We get visits from poets quite often, but always nice to meet a new one, and to know that our poem of the week is reaching folk.
Of course, the SPL is always this glamorous and rock n roll. This afternoon, for instance, was spent packaging up the Poetry Reader for dispatch to our far-flung outreach collections. We have 13 supplementary collections, from Orkney to Ullapool. They receive postcards and posters from us too – bringing people and poetry together hurrah!
