Jay Cool is happy to announce the forthcoming launch of a book by fellow poet, Simon Banks. Simon is a member of a band of geniuses who constitute the Colchester Scribblers meetup group.
You are invited to the launch of Tidelines. Poetry; visual art – two different forms brought together in one book, Tidelines. Twenty-three lyrical poems by Simon Banks matched with twenty-three pictures, digital art by Angella Horner. Angella was inspired to develop visual art to illustrate each of the poems, thus re-establishing a link between different art forms little explored since William Blake.
We are launching the book in two different places, to reflect Angella’s Colchester base and Simon’s in Harwich and Manningtree. On Friday 18th October, we’ll be at the Quaker Meeting House, Colchester; and on Tuesday 5th November, the fireworks will be literary at the Red Lion pub, Manningtree. On both occasions free refreshments will be provided (though you will have to pay for alcoholic drinks at the Red Lion!) and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
Simon and Angella will talk (and answer questions) about how the project came about and what they learnt from it. They will then read some of the poems and Simon will add some that don’t appear in the book.
On each occasion, you are welcome to turn up from 7 pm and the launch will start at 7:30. The Quaker Meeting House is 6, Church Street, Colchester http://colchesterquakers.org.uk/
and the Red Lion is in South Street, Manningtree (parking only on-street) https://www.redlionmanningtree.co.uk/.
We hope you can come to one or the other – or even both!
