Join us for the live stream book launch of the second volume of ‘National Reading Hero’ and National Football Museum poet-in-residence Paul Cookson’s COVID-19 poetry diaries.
Picking up directly from his first volume, Fighting Talk, these poems document the period of July to mid-October 2020 – from the pubs re-opening through to the introduction of the ‘Three-Tier System’.
“These trying times need poets to help us find a compass. This book is a must.” – Michael Rosen
“Paul’s poetry gives voice to all the things that scare us, all the things that lift us, and everything in between.” – The Reverend Kate Bottley
“A poignant and definitive record of a challenging, turbulent year.” – Badly Drawn Boy
Illustrated by internationally acclaimed artist Martin Chatterton.
