LONDON: Book Club Boutique

Saturday, February 13th, 2010, 3pm

Happy February Hammer & Tongue lovelies!

And Valentines Day is almost upon us once more...for some a rose-scented confection of a holiday, when sentiments so oft unexpressed can be captured in the witty refrain of a greetings card and chocolates and stuffed toys take on an extra level of heartfelt profundity...for others a sadistic, cynical, commercial nightmare of a day universally programmed to ruin existing relationships and make those not in them want to stab themselves repeatedly in the eye. Whatever your take on Valentine's Day, you cannot argue against its being a bloody good excuse for poetry, lots of it.

H&T London is deeply excited to have been invited along to Salena Godden's Book Club Boutique ( at the luscious Black's private members bar in Soho (you don't need to be a member to get in on Saturday, worry not!) on Valentine's Day Eve for a LOVE vs LUST slam!

Featuring H&T London hosts and poets Michelle Madsen, Angry Sam and Sophia Blackwell alongside Salena Godden herself, Johnny Fluffypunk and Tuggstar with a massive scrabble over love lust and romance from 3pm amidst the roaring fires and fine wines of Dean Steet's loveliest, blush inducing venue. There's bands and DJs and loads of other poets and performers including Lana Citron, Gavin James Bower, Dean Atta, Amah-Rose McKnight, Sabrina Mahfouz and Sara Stockbridge. It's going to be ace.
