We’ve chosen Drysalter by Michael Symmons Roberts as the book we’ll be discussing at the January poetry book group. Drysalter has already won the Forward prize for poetry 2013, and is shortlisted for the T S Eliot and Costa poetry award. A few of us from the book group enjoyed hearing Symmons Roberts read from his collection at the Glasgow Mirrorball in November and we’re keen to have a forum to discuss this weighty volume of 150 poems.
The book group will meet on Wednesday 29th January at 7.30 pm in the main bar of the CCA cafe bar, Sauchiehall street, Glasgow. Everyone welcome; discussion informal.
