Simon Williams Book Launch – Performance – Talk-Picnic!

SATURDAY May 18th 2013 – Studio 36 – 7pm – Free entry

Simon Williams – Bard of Exeter

SIMON WILLIAMS, Bard of Exeter 2013, poet, author of numerous books, lecturer, leader of creative writing workshops in prisons, schools and colleges, singer, participant in many interesting musical & poetic collaborations, speaker at WAYS WITH WORDS, (Dartington), will be reading from his new publication HE/SHE in the Studio on May 18th.

HE/SHE is a witty collection of prose poems around the lives of a quirky young man and woman who seem to be living in a humorous & SLIGHTLY surreal world. Amusement and surprise are in each of his delightful pieces. As Simon is a skilled performer this will be very good!

Simon lives with his poet wife, Susan Taylor, on Dartmoor.

PHILIP KUHN , historian, poet, designer, bookbinder, and founder of itinerant press which has published Simon’s book and 14 others, will give one of his fascinating talks about bookbinding and his philosophy for his press. He will show examples of books and techniques involved. It will be very interesting.

Between talk and performance visitors are invited to bring a picnic & sit about inside or outside, depending on the weather.

PLEASE book as space is limited. Simon will also be available from 2pm for anyone who can’t make the evening performance.
