Book Launch: There’s a Witch in the Word Machine by Jenni Fagan

September 14, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

£5 – £10

Golden Hare Books is delighted to host the launch of award-winning poet and novelist Jenni Fagan’s new poetry collection, There’s a Witch in the Word Machine.

Come along and celebrate the magic and power of words, listen to a reading and raise a glass to this brilliant new collection!

This new book, There’s a Witch in the Word Machine, is a collection that underpins Jenni Fagan’s entire approach to words. Her spell poems
are portraits of people, lovers and cities: Paris, New York, Edinburgh, Detroit, LA, and San Francisco. The excerpts of her Truth poem are a
political response to great uncertainty in the world right now.
This collection is an exploration of words as spells, incantations, curse and solace.
