: 06/11/2010 : Writers that have read at The Poetry Bookshop & Hay Fringe
It is said there is something very special about hearing a writer read their own work and this is never more true than when that reading takes place here in The Poetry Bookshop. To hear a writers' words come alive, leave the page and bounce around the shelves dedicated to their peers, is breathtaking experience that should not be missed. Many writers and listeners have told us so over the years and we look forward to having more readings here in the future but for now here is a list of those we have enjoyed so far.
Soleïman Adel Guémar Translated and read by Tom Cheesman

Inna Lisnianskaya - Translated & read by Daniel & Valentina Weissbort
