Two pamphlets launch
Join Cinnamon Press for an online literary evening via Zoom, with two award winning poets whose new pamphlets deserve to be celebrated.

Bonnie Thurston’s Forgotten Futures: a memoir is a tender heart’s cry and a passionate celebration in one. There is deep poignancy and longing here, but not a mawkish or maudlin word. We travel in two landscapes – the world inhabited with wonder for each small detail, and the internal world of half a couple, observing both the relationship’s moments of grace, joy and intimacy and those of wounding, longing and loss. In supple, accessible language, honed to beauty, these poems resonate with a sense of the sacredness of small things and the transforming power of memory.

Sue Lewis’s Journey has the ability to combine a conversational tone with exquisite phrases and images that surprise without any need for showiness. The quiet elegance of the poems, the sound patterns and pressure on language combine with a sensibility of the fragility of life that nonetheless refuses to be crushed. There’s a yearning ache in these pieces that remains unsentimental and leaves space for what isn’t or can’t be said; an intelligence that pays attention to the deepest connections and celebrates ‘the everyday enchantment’.

The event will begin at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday March 3 and will include a Q&A session with the online audience after the readings.

We're asking you to register so that we can manage the online space and to contribute a small registration fee which you can offset by using the discount code available during the launch against book purchases for all attendees.

We hope to see you there.
