The book club sponsored a visit by Spoz ( Giovanni Esposito ) a Birmingham poet and humorist. Spoz spoke first of all to club members and afterwards to a small audience.
His work can be sampled at http://www.spoz.net . Particularly recommended is Limerick versus Haiku. This takes the form…. well hear it for yourself; it’s an audio file.
The audience feedback was positive and the club will consider future events of a similar nature.
The club took the opportunity to thank Charlotte Horton of Tamworth Library for her help in putting together book sets and Jayne Hurley, landlady of the Tame Otter for providing a meeting venue.
