Important book launch at Royal British Legion this Thursday

Local (Colchester) historian Alice Goss is publishing 'Without Walls', a compilation of poetry, prose and photography which is to be launched at Poetrywivenhoe, at the Royal British Legion on Thursday 27 September.  The book is beautifully produced, and has a foreword by Will Quince, MP for Colchester.  Proceeds from sales of the book will go to support the work of Emmaus, St Peter's Guest House, Colchester Emergency Night Shelter, the Colchester Rough Sleeper Project and Colchester Foodbank. 
Guest reader for the evening is well-known poet Michael Bartholomew-Biggs, and there will be readings by several local poets of poems from the book .

We are hoping that there will be a lot of interest and support for this event, which has an admirable aim in raising funds to help homeless people in Colchester.
The event is open to all, £5 at the door, 7.30 for 8.00pm.
