An entertaining evening of performances sees Mike Smith telling the story of a remarkable poet, John Clare, with slideshow examples from Mike’s new illustrated book which is available to buy on the night. The event concludes with music from Stuart James Wright.
“I didn’t mean to write a book or ask Steph to illustrate it. It started out as me trying to understand why I like the poet John Clare (1793-1864) – and over the period of fifteen months I have ended up with exactly that – an illustrated book (thanks to Steph), called ‘Why Do I Like John Clare?’
It isn’t a literary/academic book – I haven’t a literary/academic bone in my body – but I do hope it allows more people to get to know John Clare – merely a ‘breath away’ in the life of the universe – and in an entertaining way….,
I’m proud of it, and I hope you might come along to another ‘first’ – a Book Launch!” Author, Mike Smith
