Launch of Susan Utting’s “Half the Human Race”

201702 Utting launch Half Human Race 3On Sunday, 12 March, 2017, Half the Human Race: New and Selected Poems  by Susan Uttig, was launched!   If you were not at the launch, here’s a summary of what you missed.

(You can still order up your copy of the book here.)

Great Expectations on was jam packed. One person estimates  there were a lot more than 60 there.  It was standing room only! Barbara sold a lot of books! Susan received many thank yous and congrats by email and Facebook and says “I’m still in a state of euphoria!”

The eminent poet Alison Brackenbury was there, all the way from Gloucestershire, and others had come from the midlands, west country, north from Lancashire and Yorkshire – all over the place. K.Phelan, retired of Southern Arts, was there too.201702 Utting launch Half Human Race 4201702 Utting launch half human race 2

Susan is planning to do a mini launch in Wokingham for local people who were so far back they couldn’t hear well, and some who couldn’t get in at all.
