Sue Leigh reads from ‘Chosen Hill’

Chosen Hill book cover

Sue will be reading from ‘Chosen Hill’ at The Pitshanger Bookshop, in Ealing on Thursday, 10th October.  6.30pm for 7pm

Leigh’s poems are brief, and employ minimal punctuation; the questions they consider, on the other hand, are expansive. Many of them read as meditations on how to exist in the world, and how we might accept the chance happenings of life. – Suzannah Evans, in the TLS

Have you seen this yet? It’s on at the Turbine House till Sunday 15th Sept, open daily, 10-6pm, and has been featured on ITV news (watch their short film here). The decor of the exhibition space coincidentally goes rather well with the cover of our new edition of the poem!
